Rich in Love

The cans rattle along behind

making almost as much noise

as the car that pulls them.

Two souls unite in the front seat

of a rusty bucket with wheels

taking them to their next stop.

With only $20 to her new name

and five more in recycled cans,

the two tally their worth.

Richer than most, these two are,

since their value is not in things,

but in the bond they made in this car.
