Fake

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 16, 2008 by dc

There is
Nothing wrong
With fake,
Strangers with
Nothing to say,
Songs
Without tunes,
Dreams
Without meanings,
Ducks
Without beaks.

In the real world
The swan neck
Is over-rated,
Ostrich races
Bring laughter,
Lucky heather
Only stays so
For a day
And twigs
Are nothing
But kindling.

There are jokes
Sat on dead farms,
People
Who will forever
Drop eggs,
Eyes that stay vacant
And singers
Without voices,
There is
Nothing wrong
With fake.
