Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Duplication Of A Dream One Wishes
Beauty can be depicted,
To become one's replica...
Of a perception of it.
Whether on canvas or in magazines.
3D movies and on smaller screens.
Even in pageant shows,
With beauty depicted row after row...
Of replicas posing,
Hoping to reflect an acceptance of it.
To come close but not a clone.
And beauty represented for what it is,
Can never be duplicated!
Not as much as it can be appreciated,
When first and only seen.
Dolls are manufactured in factories,
To assemble for the purposes of just that.
A duplication of a dream one wishes,
To fulfill as fantasized...
As an image sought one seeks to re-create,
To be perceived as the real thing.
Like a snowflake when under microscope,
But not quite as closely scoped,
To examine as being unique 'and' original.
