Nature Wins

Bambi and Bosc on Alberto’s black pearls mind. 

They say “Bosc”, maybe it means, 

not “forest” but, “Bosch;” 

they owned all of the land 

pieces of it were bought 

by wealthy families like mine. 

In any event, Bosc Farres was lost 

to my grandmother in twenty-nine, 

later it went to an orphaned second cousin, 

next to a pile of jewelry, paintings, 

and twenty-four karat gold, 

which do not replace parents, but help.
