I am a charlatan
peddling fraudulent wares
but nobody else can see
the pushpins
where adhesive didn't stick.
And you'd think the paper trail
from the newspaper suit
would give it away
but the pictures keep smiling
while underneath gangrene begins
and happy happy faces
mask the smell
of death.
Poem

EDIT: Woah, a DD! A marvelously pleasant surprise. ^-^

I feel like this is about homelessness. Am I right?

... i felt like that a few years ago. people hide hurts and fears and corruptness underneath a flimsy outside that keeps floating away, way too often...

Congrats on your DD!!! :handshake:

This is a really neat piece...it has a great surreal feel to it, but its realistic, too.

"But the pictures keep smiling..." Boy, ain't that the truth!

Excellent. I totally can see the gangrene under the facade.
Thanks for sharing.
