Mannequin

a living statue,

perpetually poised

for the lens

that might capture you

unaware.

.

you dress your Self 

in the garb 

of ideologies and ideas,

a hanger for cloaks

that others purchase

to hide their truths.

.

i choose to lay bare my plains

before the winds

that mock me for my trust

in the magnanimous current

that sinuously sweeps

the inner curves 

of my soul’s clay,

and with a grating roar –

cascades pebbles 

downstream.

.
