poem Jade



Every pitch hits some
Differentiated and
Distinctly sharp mark.

Typically it’s at
Least the fact that this vendor’s
Lawyers nailed the name.

They alone in their space are
Thusly entitled.


How nicely every
Press release marks another
Milestone in their rise.

How capital was
Amassed, plans staked firm, and bright
Warm brains brought on board.

Now culminating
In this major or minor
Green innovation.


Remind me: I’ve been
Around this block several times.
Perhaps I’m jaded.

We’ve met, haven’t we--
Mandalay or Caesars--or
Purely virtual?

Hard to distinguish
This present polish from the
Glint of bygone gems.
