Our Beautiful Forgeries - July 28, 2022

lies are the colors

brushed over

an original painting

usually just a quick touch up

to pretty-up the picture

or change our prominence


a complete do over

a well-produced fake

layered one-half millimeter

above the original scene

we hope no one remembers

of course I hang mine

among all the others

to avoid questions

and hope they aren't scrutinized

or worse accidentally

bumped off their hook

and brought to me

with apologies for the damage

along with a dozen probing questions
