true beauty

bottled peridot or peregrin

stuffed behind glass or wire

corked closed and locked door

for staring and admiring

outside the window display

the shine, the sheen

on the gemstone

on the feathers

viewed in the capture

in the obtaining

collecting possessions

for possessing

only to stuff in

bottles and cages

never allowing the beauty

to sparkle in the moonlight

or fly into the stars

free to be

in a world

where true beauty

is free
