Wrapped In Veneer


never 
took it an 
indirect expression 
of where we’re at; 

knowing dimension 
and artefact usually keeps 
the pace - but, here, we’re 
so naive what 

saves us 
is an ‘in-spirit’ of 
the fathomably real 
whom-we-are  

don’t need 
create assemblages 
of artifice to put these 
wares on display 

it is an imposing 
edifice - too sheer 
to take liberties, 
but plain as day 

and despite 
those restraints we’re 
wrapped in its 
veneer
