high and low
through cobbled streets
and secreted shops
filled with this
and that
and the other
seeking desperately
until it was found
the perfect gift
the perfect color
style and size
of what was shared
the symbolism right
the gift that
offered acknowledgment
of talent and
of that talent
imagine my surprise
finding it there
among the well worn
bits and pieces
of used up lives
offered up
to the highest bidder
one dollar you say?
in hindsight
as worthless now
as it ever was
