Sample piece from FINGERPRINTS (On Canvas)

Exhibition

They move, between skyline and markets
between farmyards and sea
trying to blend with the make-up and suits
examining each paintin
as though it was a new potato

He, unable to control an urge, takes the carved
wood bird from it perch
and sails it through the air
past the DO NOT TOUCH sign

She, swallows red wine
and squints at a "Piebald in Trees"
tries with a pink fingernail to remove
the red dot of purchase

Midway, they converge
a hushed conference
glasses refreshed, they change sides
he, with the piebald
she, with the bird

While, oblivious to their antics
the real frauds make the rounds
