Poem: Counterfeit

Knight in shining armour – silver plate

riding a donkey decoy.

Chipped smile, white veneer, and eyes of grey ice,

faux bravado rock ’n’ roll.

Deception, thick like the beard he hides behind, slips through fingers and over hands like silk – smooth hands, no jagged grooves to snag lies.

Chameleon, a leather jacket of many colours,

change to match me, change to match her,

change to match.
