Calliope's Song


Rubies and sapphires
emeralds and gold
words like diamonds
dancing in the sun
visions that shatter
images that stun.

But rhinestones and sequens shine
just as bright
and angels and demons
beat the same drum
to a Music heard by none..

Editing stage: 


All the temptations of the fair, but also the dangers that sometimes lie within the pleasure. All that glitters is not good, and even the music is strained. I think it's the falseness you write about here, and the dangers of taking things on first sight. If i'm correct then the poem works. Regards Roscoe..

Roscoe Llane,

Religion will rip your faith off, and return
for the mask of disbelief that's left.

Yes, my friend, and it is also about the relativity of beauty.
