Gold Stars (Day 111)


Fourteen-karat 
     stars—
gold as his 
     watch (already too 
     long),
his fountain 
     pen (overused), 
his ormolu 
     furniture, taking up 
valuable real estate, 
     the like of which 
he has never sold
—none will be 
given to those 
with dirty hands 
and failing grades.
