Poem - By The Wrapper

The poem “By The Wrapper” was inspired thoughts about affection supported by more than the surface normative.


By The Wrapper

To vouch a love by the wrapper
appearance measured above all other
ascribed to bits attached therein
excludes the passions that may linger

distractions are plentiful
defining beauty by all groups
be they religious in their stead
or commercial making bread

the subtle hint or much more
by the curve or flesh shown
both evoke a quick judgment
knowingness that will conflict

with perfection found within
below the surface of the skin
beyond pretension of organs
placed by nature to procure

when not needed they are surplus
to the pursuit of true love
that longs apart from fae sight
touch extending to the heart

the clues forsaken allow for more
now just a nudge before the fall
love is found in true romance
absent in the wrapper’s charm.
