Wealth

It took the whole day yesterday to change — one word.

What patience they both had! — and not a shred of jealousy.

You first — It’s not my turn — Are you sure?

I held the door — the train — left — the station.

How lonely the platform! — the night — concurred.

Wealth

n.

so little
there’s nothing left

that wasn’t here
before
