GRAY ON CHROME
(3/5/17)

we patch

we compensate

we labor
for some semblance
of the original

from a distance
our efforts seem
a success

but we know
that our repairs

our cover ups

are substandard

shaded substitutes
for what should be

we know
the reality

still we hope
that no one
else
notices

that our world
always appears
shiny

new
