Diamonds are Square

Developed under pressure, under tons of metric heat,
Cut to fit her finger in the shape of chivalry,
Sparkling like cider, like glass slippers, like the beach
In midday sun. Stun like thunder without sound,
Knee on the ground and pleading eyes,
Assenting cries and sighs of relief
Ring out and word spreads like a virus:
Congratulate the happy couple!
Diamonds used to be forever.  Now we have the IRS.
