the Truth…in grey

rabbit ears
rabbit-eared, Silhouette works a side job,

moonlighting as a hollow-gram,

–itself seeking Original halo, and substantial quest—

though Silhouette weights less

on gossamer headgear

than Shadows–

–somebody’s got to feed them, right?

employing light to show

what’s what,

to frame this selfless act,

to fill in the spaces between M and T

(that’s a lot of alphabet!)

but goes immediately undercover

(deep 6)



Silhouette endeavors to mirror

Hologram in tangible acts…

sweeping the tables clean every few minutes

the better to copy the basics

–a graveyard class Reflection teaches every other Thursday, and sometimes a seemingly pointless

reason to stay awake, but attendance is mandatory

(if you join)

deciphering chalk outlines

that fit awkwardly,

disparaging make-up,

and pretend,

and polished, nailed


.a quasi-stigmata.

since Reflection requires use of all Silhouette’s


even the rabbit ears.
