The social footsteps of time -
cropped and matted
on display
or periodically splashed
as inserts;
shape-shifting remnants
of truth reconstituted.

Epitaph stamped in flashbulb memoriam,
luminous pedigree by the gilded soothsayers,
their slant in showmanship

present fact below par –
misperceived as “nothing but”
predigested cultural mandarins
with a one-world narrative
emanating Jeremiahs
on the nightly news…

You see –
not always does a picture tell the whole story…
‘worth a thousand words’

- perhaps,
or thirty seconds spent in commercial
apart from first making deeper inquiry –
amongst the many thousands from which to choose
which absolute is there left to lose?
