“diamonds are a girls best-friend”

ring pop, photo credit candy warehouse
when you look
upon diamonds 
with your specialized
magnifier -- what is it that you seek?

the organic clarity & shape
or do you think about its country
of origin? and, perhaps
the humans who've
suffered for something
that's worth...

what was it in my day?
oh yes, now, i remember
3 months salary!

completely oblivious
to the fact that diamonds
mean love -- especially
since its authentic
essence is pressed
coal -- i know of another
alternative that is significantly
cheaper, fun & delicious...
