Post-Valentine's Day

soft music
as you stand near the door
I pour us some drinks and
wonder what lies you'll tell me

The 14th of February has become so commercial, everyone celebrating it has become almost predictable; and to think this had never been part of original Dutch culture. On the other hand, how else to call a day of customized romance ... Ella the Cynic

Ella, skepticism is not cynicism. Oscar Wilde says a cynic knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. I think you're pretty clear on the value of most things, as much as any of us can claim.

The value of many things is disguised these days, as if the things themselves are afraid of showing what they really are ... perhaps for fear they might not get bought?
