Opera Glasses~by Nikki Anne Schmutz

OUR POETRY CORNER

Opera Glasses

Let’s leave
the unadulterated flattery
to the car salesmen of the world.
Coat check our pride
at the front desk,
hand over tickets of credentials
traded for front row seats
of an exquisite display.

Let’s view
the masterpiece of beauty
through opera glasses of truth.
Find perfection in faulty voice,
artwork fashioned by flaws.
Vulnerability center stage
singing the song of acceptance
and splendor in us all.
