RAE DESMOND JONES
I am not counterfeit

I am not a counterfeit if you spin me into the air I will gleam all the way down if you listen to my heartbeat it will play Beethoven's Ninth if you hold me up to the light you will see my smile if you bite me I will bite back I you polish me I will shine if you break me into my parts I will weep & my tears will taste of salt & sand but no blood will flow..
