Fortune into a Bargain


He had a face

like a sieve


Her love differed

from tumultuous passion


as the flowers of the field

from the splendor of a garden bed.


How pitiless are the laws of society!


Sure, a sunset is a great subject

for poetry - BUT is not one ridiculous

describing it in high‑sounding words

before a materially-minded audience?
