Your experienced eye missed
and casually dismissed
the difference in shades
the discrepancy in textures
the finer details
hidden, as if in veils…
If you cared look harder
you would have seen sooner
the cracks carefully re-plastered
and meticulously re-painted
so the imperfections wouldn’t show
in light or shadow…
