The Musketeer

Forget for a moment

The meaning, 

Of new age marshall…..

Remember the name “musketeer,”

The name for sharp shooter,

What do we really know

Of such a presence,

Even as

The sound of the name 

Evokes…

Such elegance in demeanor…?

Surely,

It’s been nigh a year,

No dream, this recollection,

That a musketeer appeared…

He stood 

On a public threshold,

And commanded the doorway,

So noticeable,

Was his energy.

When I turned and spoke

A friendly hello,

My vocal resonance

Bounced right off,

His steely composure.

So stalwart

Was the hold,

On the presence of emotion.

Incongruence had me,

In the folds.
