for iris, with refrain.

mounted on plaster posing as marble,
cast from pirites dressed up as gold.
On closer inspection the silk is just cotton,
the coffee is instant, the promise forgotten.

  1. Oh my. My my my. How do you do it, how do you weave such beauty with mere words? Those last two lines are immortal…

  2. Indeed time to wake up and smell the coffee. I love the idea of the mirage of hope coffee can bring until you get it and find the reality. Yes, Starbucks, I’m thinking of you.

  3. Perfect.
