Poverty is often concealed in splendor, and often in extravagance.
It is the task of many people to conceal their neediness from others. Consequently they support themselves by temporary means, and everyday is lost in contriving for tomorrow.
There are a lot of editorials that have nothing to do with anything like that.
But I was just thinking of that sense of prose as being very responsible and perceptive, thoughtful, intimate, and contriving a quote statement.
