Dylan Harris

Longwy, March 2016

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

glitter & hue
texture & ruff
pattern & form
feather & score
theme & loss 

old could be young
boy        man
man       girl
girl        song 

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

gait can turn
tick       turn
habits & manners slip
all can act
everyone does 

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

walk the parade
the tunnel the gates
feel la ville exalt
