o lovely go-juice, you are not my usual
flavor, my standard brand, my favorite
blend; no, you are my austerity measure
brand, purchased from aldi foodstores, and yet
are you lesser for it? and if slightly,
is this then a fearful inferiority?
or merely a subtle difference . . . I say
you hold the cream only slightly lighter,
a more casual tilt . . . your richness lacks
pretension, guile, sophistication, but
you are no lesser, no, no lesser indeed:
more the prideless pleb, utilitarian,
and the more pleasurable for being
more tasteful than chicory, yet humble still.
