Paradox

 

How wealthy I am

in such a lack

 

how rich

in the specific of  poverty

 

I have everything this day

but you to share it with

 

and so it seems I have nothing

yet, knowing such ever-brimming loss

places me beyond my peers of  need 

                  

                   somehow

 

          it is like having all of never

          into which to set a now.
