On The Scene


that shadow side
of my being
watches behind 
without eyes, 
a graysoul memory
of  sullen-heart

perfunctory smiles 
above a beet-purple 
soul garnish my 
eyes like weapons 
of a hunter's quill.  I pose 

that male-model pose,
both sides of my 
questioning demeanor 
answered in palettes 
of muted
