Kim is the host of dVerse today. Kim says:
This week I’d like you to take any meaning, form or compound of the word rich, and write a poem of exactly 44 words (not counting your title), including the prompt word.

Worm King

Tender, smooth skin,
Peristaltic, mining
Wilted lettuce, apple peels;
Constricting scraps
While centipedes march
Endless reconnaissance
And sowbugs sip brown juice.
Castoff corner of any garden,
Busier than any stock exchange,
You bring us your garbage
And we make you rich
with black gold.
