If we highlight the texts of our history
with honesty, and orange over acts
of generosity or courage. Use blued-black
for nonsense. Our lies would soon flood
with rutty brown all the pages in an impossible ocean
where infrequent as bits an awful white
silence could wade in wait to lose its viscous limbs and walk.
