“Turquoise is an opaque, blue-to-green mineral that is a hydrated phosphate of copper and aluminium.”

When I was a child
I did not seek treasures
Or victory
Sought the peace
and tranquility
Of a soft bed
of your kind, caring words
Now I see
What I need
My heart becoming black
Leading the damned
To the back
Where the mines grow
Where our minds go
To feast
And I need it
I must hold it
Lord behold it
Beauty abound
My feet glued to the ground
I own it
That turquoise gemstone.
