How to distinguish a real pearl from a fake?
Throw it into the lake.
A real one will disappear
A fake pearl will be near.

Up to a point
pliant leaves will seep
into all its waters
until the cup overflows
so much as to stain
the meticulously starched table linen.
Then we shall face with reckoning
its true substance!
