TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT

junk

Sometimes, we see the reality of relationships
and sometimes, we don’t.

   TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT

If, carefully,
I made a blue Chinese junk
And put it at your feet
Very tenderly.
Would you take it into your hands
And keep it safe.
Or would you breathe upon it a small wind
To make it float away from you.

Or would you,
Very gently,
Maroon it on a waterlily
And let it rot.

As usual.
