into ugly

slide into ugly
or the ant’s nest kicked
a paused moment
where you search for a new map
to understand this alarm
waking you to something else

flags
badges
hats

unplugging chameleon facades
naked howling parades
the ignorance on placards
the glory fades

all left for the clean-up squads
conveniently redrafted gods
spoil and oil to grease the cogs
