Dagger Types

Tracing photographs,

armed to the teeth

with colored pencils,

pretending bronze plates

can be overwritten

beyond the black and white.

Outside the veil, it’s plainly seen

the face has yet to change.


Toying with the features recreates the same,

for in an eyesight’s unwavering light,

imperfections expand in view.

With words swinging from tired verse,

I attack the breaks in doctored romance.

Somewhere beneath is the lurking similarity.
