This series takes place in the (early) 70's.




Ch. 1: All Is Not As It Seems

 

Had they asked Jackson's dog, Jax,

he would have said

it was not Jackson Smith-Cotton

 

that disappeared that day,

but Dewy, Jackson's identical twin. 

The river was dragged, the plane recovered, 

 

not the body. An accident, or so it seemed.

The memorial service was modest,

a wreath, a gesture to the river. It was cold.

 

No one but Jax 

knew that Dewey and Jackson

had arranged a switch-a-roo two years earlier,

 

when Jackson was slated by the DEA for undercover work,

and Jax wasn’t talking.

As far as I can tell, this makes no damned sense at all, but it's fun poem, and a good one.
