More error, fakery, and glitch
Than excellence. More fluff and kitsch
Than treasure. More duplicity
And hype than authenticity.
You know, so often offered stems
Not flowers, huckstered paste not gems.
You seldom quit–but you returned
And deeper for each lapse. You learned
The rose of dusk, the eloquence
Of honesty in many tints.
