And This Is Why

It is melancholy

which replaces

beauty seen so daily

upon the pillow

paired on the mattress

hoisted up

on stilts

and wheels

with storage underneath

of seasons lapsed

and weather to come.


It is a dry face which

continues to search – the goal- the colonies to gain

while remembering

the shore

where the sails

were made


And cargo loaded


and lessons learned

of how to spot

the authentic

and fraud-

of art


and of those

journeymen lost


for the fine lines

twixt pretty

and genuine.
