The origin of the measure carat is the carob seed, each one 0,2 grams


of camels and carob seeds


spoke the chiropractor

you cannot come here
all the time

 

need to do something

about your workload

 

which is added to

one carob seed at a time
                     a measure of coal
                     under pressure

following the seam
to its natural end

 

I understand the calculus
of basic labor rights
said the camel


no succor

in the Taklamakan


except shed tears
and snotty nostrils

Jim - a straw, yes, but diamonds are forever. Which is why I changed the metaphor.

All this time I thought it was the straw that broke the camel's back.
