Dead Jewels

By Elvira

Twinkling                     in                     a Brown bag
Not seen                                  Memories       are better
than life
Not chosen –               given.              Mere knick-knacks
Would              that they were
with You: Ashes
Not scattered

No Riches.                   Pawned beauties
the Union broken
the Pearls scattering
the oblivion
Thinking          earbobs
only reminders
of unspoken words –
Until the END –
then                 Late                 better
