honey bee — [M]

elegant faux–rocracy
glad rags galore
masques & made anon
still face       false hair
absence of presence

glitter & colour
texture & ruff
pattern & form
feather & score
theme & none

old could be young
boy        man
man       girl
saw        song

a scar is gone
a facial mar is gone
ugly is gone
self–image is gone
all is ideal

gait can be turned
tick       turned
habits & manners slipped
all can act
everyone did

colour in winter sun
snapping crowds like dandelions
a dancing faux–jester
we’re serious tea

walk the parade
the tunnel the gates

feel the city exalt
