There's probably a few like that.

Something like splashing from 'The Last Night of the Earth Poems' or millionaires from 'Mockingbird Wish Me Luck' maybe?

Perhaps you mean poverty from 'Burning in Water Drowning in Flame'
it is the man you've never seen who
keeps you going,
the one who might arrive
someday.

[...]

a living man, truly alive,
say when he brings his hands down
from lighting a cigarette
you see his eyes
like the eyes of a tiger staring past
into the wind.
