Says a realist

Is it half empty, Is it half full.

Is this for me. Is this for you.

Will our contents sustain us.


I got all these multiple glasses.

Sometimes I gotta drink them.


Some of these stay in a cabinet.

I keep these glasses on display-

I rarely use these, they get dusty;

If they drop, even once, they shatter.


I got plastic cups that have cracks

in their lip and yet they still function

years and years after I bought them;

Every time they see the dishwasher

their color fades a little bit more;

We hold each other everyday;

I keep these in a lazy susan.


The point is it’s a cycle.

My answer is there’s many.
