Antithesis of Camouflage

by Robert Grant

Orion is a curious hunter: clothed

in light, he makes no effort

to conceal himself; his proud belt

broadcasts his presencea piercing trumpet

in a sea of muted chimes.

Is it any wonder

he’s never caught anything?

Robert Grant is a poet-screenwriter whose poems have appeared in DASH Literary Journal, Mudfish, Typishly, and Medical Literary Messenger—as well as on numerous unsolicited postcards to family and friends. He has written a comedy (screenplay) and is currently at work on a family drama.
