Poetry and Porcelain

In the still,
in the dark,
each morning
I practice my art.
While I try to go deep,
the daily mundane
I achieve 
approaches the inane.
And if fame 
is what I seek to gain
I would do better
to find reality
in another venue,
than continue this 
so like trying
to rub through a sink's 
porcelain with a finger nail.
And yet, in my sink
is a darkened area,
made so by years of 
running water.
Proof, perhaps,
that we can 
go beyond
the pedestrian.

    I really dig where you went with this poem. Reality hurts sometimes though, doesn't it.
