either toe massage or
gelato, not a bewildering
choice although few fly free
in a wilderness of luxury

promises in refined taste
feed self-esteem – too much
lime in the gelato per se but
creaminess meets expectations

so where you sincerely rest
easy and sleep appeased I’m
amazed how little it takes
to massage the peace

there is room for the way
you make truth attainable
no fees for being actual
no shameless expectations
