Carbon looks into
the eyes of Diamond
squarely and unabashedly
and questions
‘when you and I are just the same
have the same
and configurations
why is it that people
pay so much to acquire you
while they just
ignore me
and use me to smear
to blacken someone’s face
to punish and disgrace?’

Diamond smiles benignly
and says ‘look my brother
I borrow little light
from the outside
and give it back
to the world
compounded and manifold
while you take it in all
absorb the whole
and never
ever return even
a single quantum.’
