Pretenders

They wear their artificial beauty with humility

and know that in the world of authenticity

they are inferior in all ways but fragility.

For delicate beauty fades and wilts with time.

Humbly they wear their elements of cloth and wire,

knowing they will endure long past the garden rose’s day.
