Airbrushed

(context)

they used to airbrush photos
¿do you remember?
Trotsky was never in that group portrait
and none of those fifth columnists watched the Mayday parade

a Great Encyclopedia
so I’m told
once said too much about Bergholtz and the Bering Sea
to cover up the hole that used to be Beria

in modern democracies
I’m assured
such measures are unnecessary

the names of murdered children
unfortunately
might suggest to an unwary public
that children had been murdered
