he doubts now

what he firmly knew before

he sits quietly sits aside

and listens to yet another

desert huckster selling us

an unflattering picture of ourselves

as people howl assent around him

he looks up in the slate-violet twilight

and imagines all present looking at

different pictures of this same soapbox
