Constructed Realities

The Garden
By Elizabeth Cutright

I’ve built myself a garden,
and on the surface it’s quite beautiful
(as you can plainly see)
I think the ivy covers the wall quite nicely –
don’t you?

If you look closer you’ll see
the flowers are made of paper
(and you thought I had no skill)
Nevertheless I pretend they’re real –
don’t you?
