The Cost of Reflection

She stands firmly in a tiny bay of reflections
She holds a non-cloth bag with an inscription
She and herself retain the edges of a melting flag
She is protected by flagstones and wavering light
She wears the clothing necessary to defy elements
*Yet plastic is a recipe of eventual disaster
*And the words represented are a mystery
*As are the reflected images because of the reign
*And the implications of a national banner
*Complicate all suns coverings patios and natural names

She must opt for the tenacity of occurrence
                     or the durability of experience
