We all flabby.
think we all this and thaty.
We all nuttin.
scale shelled pieces of
Or GO-in like Sheen.
Pop reference in a poem about Pearls?
And what pears mean?
and why they gleam in such an incredible way
by such gray and such a way
of fooling us there’s no pear there.
Pfff not me.
Guess what? Analogies break down.
This one will too.
There not pearls in all oysters is there?
What of the non-pearled ones.
Are they abandoned?
Or just somehow b(e[=/-i])tter closed off than the rest of us?
