CULTIVATING EMPOWERMENT THROUGH POETRY

To be wealthy

said the feline
is to be fed and pampered
like a newborn baby.

To be wealthy
said the piano
is to be played
and tuned
like a magician’s audience

To be wealthy
said the human
is to have power
and control
like the moon dictates
the tide.

  1. Compelling piece.

  2. The idea that for a piano, wealth is measured by the ability to — with the aid of another — make music, is fantastic!
    Thank you for your poem!
