Wait for me. I’ll be back.
The diamond mines cannot hold the spirit down for ever.
I have lost a nickel but found a terrapin.
It means something.

Waking up next to a mermaid
it occurred to me I could not swim.
Don’t fret, she bubbled. I have you.
My heart was at rest but my mind wasn’t.

“the Spaniards sacked the Inca army camp,
in which they found great treasures of gold, silver, and emeralds.
Noticing their lust for precious metals,
Atahuallpa offered to fill a large room
about 22 feet long and 17 feet wide
up to a height of 8 feet
once with gold and twice with silver”
