class embodied, scarred yet undeserving –
of what it seems? the girl, or forgiving?
king of blue, gold; but doesn’t bleed red
unfeeling? little-seeming? popular
populist, voted in, but not quite the
same as those who did. flourescent pavement,
haggling over hand-me-downs? confused like
the man – but ruling a different land.
loftier, understood, yet not quite so.
