Scrape to the Bone

thCARRBTUQScrape to the Bone

Some…
search for authentic
in mundane artifacts
like Levi’s jeans
glass Coca Cola bottles
bright black of Amish quilts
Warhol’s tomato soup cans
they…
scrape to the bone
to satisfy a craving
for authenticity
much like Diogenes
who…to make a point…
held lit lanterns
in Athens daylight
looking for an honest man
