Unreal Valentine

We still don’t get it do we lord
that you spoke as a true economist
of the spirit when you warned us
not to take for real what passes
but to check the foundations
and underlying implications
of the soul of things
knowing full well having
stored yourself there
we would find you waiting
the one real thing
from which alone
could the unreal proceed
as flesh and bone
as talent and need
