Sincerest Form Of Shame

Plagiarism self-inflicted,

it blinds veracity

keeping us forever

in the dark

To wander in costume

as others unnamed,

 their vision

to herald and hark

In shadows of obscurity

 doubt crossing fear,

we steal

what can’t be bought

Reflecting false images

by our hand


—what can’t be caught
