Imitation Leather

withrealtoads
Sunday Mini-Challenge Flying From Orlando to Picasso Imagined By
” Ahem – so, what’s the prompt again?  To write of something real”

 

Logos, name brands, exclusive labels
I care not
perfection has its downside
imitation ain’t so great either
give me the actual, real, genuine
that’s what I love in you
a true original
flesh and blood
band-aided
crooked nose
calloused hands
tender touch
imperfect
man.

    Yes, I guess the true original was an imperfect man. But the Woman, she made him that way!!!
    I like it, Debi, Goodness knows I ain’t perfect, no way. Sometimes I don’t try.

    p.s. I had no idea of the artifice but I may have stumbled onto it. REAL, yes. Truthful? who knows?

  4. Perfect is always there in the way we view it… A few words and the man or woman will feel perfect.

  7. May not always be perfect but when you are real to yourself, then that’s as real as it can get. Good poem and thanks for your comment

  11. Perfection and Imitation… I know a young lady that “lives” for second hand name brand things bought through a Goodwill. Great she finds such deals… but disturbing the thrill she gets when she owns “perfection”. I guess it’s the emphasis she puts on it. I like this poem and its message very much.
