Cont’d from behold, (beauty) in the eyes of the beholder 2.
..or at least acknowledged,
like the warmth and personality
of an extinguished lamppost
They say that
if you ask a Minnesotan how
he feels on the day his comely
leaves him, he loses his job
or worse, his dog dies, the answer
remains unchanged; ‘fine’ he says.
Lets thus take note, and savor
times when beauty and paisley holds
a hotchpotch of life itself
lest we fail to notice it
lest we fail to notice its gone
