Honest History

Headlights captured pebbles,

Ancient charisma mistook the chiseled ArCh

For Hercules’ jawline. Air quote hiss…

Recognized in popped tires and elephant signals.

Waved off shadows.

Parrot (i) traded in reality

For the proper height.

An inch off the jawline.

A foot from the road

And

Pink

And

Purple

Blush designs accosted his smile

Left sand to be named by toes

Buried beneath the surface.

Uprooted nominal

Fantasies

About what goes on

When history

Repeats itself.
