The Hope of Red-Hooped Reflections

Everybody seems to assume that I am but a reflection
of the five-hooped Olympian man on the copper shore
but I am here to plead my difficult yet streaming case
for you see the red-suited body raising solid circles
is actually an un-reflection of an original being that is
me: I am an aquatic entity with powers of projection
and I have projected my vermillion version of things
to a spot on the bank where I can appear statuesque
and be a beacon for the unity of all red-blood cells everywhere.
