A 'word' makes a world of difference

Adding a simple word to the famous poem "I Met a genius" by Charles Bukowski makes it ... well it makes it majestic .. read on 

Charles Bukowski
I Met A Genius

I met a genius on the train
today
about 6 years old,
he sat beside me
and as the train 
ran down along the coast
we came to the ocean
and then he looked at me
and said,
it's not pretty. it's profound
it was the first time I'd 
realized 
that.

Sometimes a simple word makes a world of difference! And changes the theme of the poem. Where once it was nihilist and lonely it's brighter and hopeful now.
