Ornamentation only

cardboard charlatans
candy colours
wearing the bones
of a once-proud city
duck-egg blue
doomed ship impaled
on flaring pink
kiss of yellow
smear of beige
orange reinforcements
on the march
outside the walls
real people
reduced to shadows
ornamentation only
one dimensional truths
twisted at right angles
the lighthouse has lost its eye
