A fairy tale.
Frail princesses have a penchant
for apple merchants and peasant
witches. Life is not a Disney show.
And you know in the end princes
and their mates are relegated
to dust all the same. Must we always try
making silk purses only to leave deaf
sows in our wake? Spinning gold
from moldy straw can get old.
Your best bet is to get your donkey
in gear and move to where
you make your own dreams come true.
Then, it’s your fault if the vault is bare.
