2-ply Beliefs

An overpass of wishes
through the new year rushes,
Remembered streams,
The intimate memes,
Familiar shades of
The promises made.

Our innocent mirages
Are conjurings unresistable,
Evergreen and circular
Decades of a wallpaper
I've stared at and through
Resilient still to all the reals.

But hope is an ardour,
An urge and a mystic.
These 2-ply beliefs battle lazily,
A why and a why not,
None more possible than air
The feeling found when most lost.
