There must be more to life
than diamonds
pictures of food
and money

It may sound funny
but a quick survey of the Internet
and you will soon conclude
that money, food, and diamonds
are the stuff of the soul

I remember now
she said
most people never reach the highest level of cognitive development
for them, abstraction is the most abstract thing possible
all they can do is with their feet
and live in the most possible world of the concrete
