“No way!” gasped Marley, staring at the beautiful oil painting on the wall of the parlor. “I didn’t know you had one of Cantet’s pieces!”
Madam Semple laughed and shook her head apologetically. “I’m afraid it’s not the authentic one,” she replied. “Just a facsimile. But it’s lovely, isn’t it? My late husband was quite the fan of Cantet.”

Gary stopped trudging through the streets for one moment. For some reason, maybe fate, maybe God, maybe some divine combination of the two, he raised his head. For the first time in years, he felt. On the side of a building, some old cigarette factory, was a gorgeous landscape, beautifully lifelike, of a forest.

I sit up when my alarm goes off. I hit it. Across from my bed there’s a window and when I look into it, I see another man, sitting up, hitting his clock, but I know it’s not me. I can’t be me. His hands move with mine. He yawns when I yawn, but my hair is black. His skin is pale. He doesn’t look like he knows what ‘jovial’ is.
He can’t be me.

She wasn’t like other girls.
She’d made sure of it when she came through the machine, grabbing the ink blotter and adding an extra freckle to each cheek. Even robots don’t want to be direct copies, right?

fascists smile similarly
facsimiles simulate similarity
single file singularity
layers like a fascinating simile

It’s not counterfeit money I told the judge…it’s just a pretty good facsimile of paper money.

In you a certain color code
Unmatched, unchallenged up ‘till now.
A deadly dance in past forebode.
Your shoulders bent, a heavy load.
You bear it all, I don’t ask how
You have a certain color code.
Line like a mirror, gently toed
Eyes meet, hand touch, we take our bows
A deadly dance we had forebode.
The thinnest thread, our fabrics sewed
Red string pulled tight, no more allowed
Its has a matching color code.
Unexpected, this lonely road
Together, alone—both! Somehow,
This deadly dance has been forebode.
It bleeds and blends, the hues bestowed
And in them lies a forlorn vow
We have a certain color code,
A deadly dance we both forebode.

Somewhere along the line I was given this great gift. It was you. But since youve been gone– nearly 10 years– I have found myself living intandom with a replacement. A facsimile of you. Looks like you, thinks like you… But it is not you.

I don’t know that this word is or means for that matter. A fake smile, like a simile or something? facile, like it’s easy–easy like your mom, easy like Sunday morning? What is it, explain it to me. C’mon kid, go ahead, make my day.

Facsimile. Fax machine. They’re outdated, and yet still used so frequently! You would think that only old people had a use for them, but no. Every industry still uses them. Insurance, banking. ALl of them, simple emails aren’t secure enough for them for some dumb reason. Who knows. They are a fucking annoyance though, who has time to try and find a machine!

There were copies of everything, from faces to feet, from ears to earwigs. The copiers were everywhere, cheap, unavoidable. Mothers kept copies of their children in racks next to the doors of their houses. One per day for years. Some had all of the copies from after birth but most just kept monthly or yearly copies for posterity.

It’s a fascimile smile.
A pastiche grin
it’s printed in dots and dashes
made up of dots of black ink
on white canvas
it’s a smooth curve made of sharp points
it’s nature crafted by an inhuman hand

I actually don’t know the meaning of facsimile. It sounds like a metaphor for a simile. I need to read more.
Facsimile – noun; an exact copy
Sometimes I feel like I am an exact copy of what people expect from me, that no matter what I will behave as tho tied in strings of expectations and responsibilities. Only when I am alone I feel that this mirrored world becomes opaque and doesn’t reflect the facsimile of their minds.

I think of faxes. Fax machines.
My friend’s father had one at the house, when we were growing up, for work. The old kind with the reams of paper with perforated edges. This was before most people had home computers, or home printers. Rolls of paper poured through the fax machine all the time. It was supposedly very cool and people were excited about it. I didn’t understand what was so great about it. It was just words. No pictures or anything!

I don’t know what a facsimile is or what facsimile means. I don’t even have a guess. If I did guess, I would be wrong. It sounds like I might know, but I have no clue.

A facsimile is a copy of something,like a painting by a very famous artist, the painting might be fake. People that are not wealthy might make a fake picture of a famous picture and sell it for thousands of dollars for the money.

A duplicated copy of an original. Not for confusing with an original it can only shine a mirror image onto what is supposed to be, but isn’t. An abbreviation for it is fax.

the facsimile of my face
never a disgrace
a sportsman at success
my ostensible cheerfulness is here to attest
what was arrested
from my pride.
another resume, another application, another smile,
im ready for the company car,
Watch me flail open into a barrier of darkness
and come out with a vale of cheer,
a viking-girl with volumptous thighs,
and a beer.
Stolid as a boulder,
money is mine for the taking,
negativty, put it in the oven, its baking,
eat it, lets see it, a new door open
for me to seize it.
