Out of Fashion

Surreptitious stevedore,
dashing between mooring posts
like a Stevenson character,
satchel full of cagey maps to
some scree heap lashed by leeward
to a single palm tree.

An epistolary,
nineteenth century fraudster,
discovering an ancient manuscript
by way of Blair Witch, Dada maybe Bauhaus
some German experimental century turner
long gone out of fashion.
