what is observable

sometimes we see love
which does not look like love

but what is the point
of witnessing superficial sweetness

when there is nothing
but fluff beneath the surface?

people are brought to life, are sustained
in so many different ways–

better to see the rough edges
than to watch people pretend.

better to hold fast to hope
that they are not pretending.
