- What Matters
I will stand in front of them with a young heart.
We are mutual strangers who judge each other
in the blink of our lives' eyes.
They will peg me with a voice, body, personality TYPE.
Thirty minutes will decide a fate that they hold
the remote control to.
Someone else once decided their own fate that
led them to lead a bitter and routine existence
Their candle burned out long ago,
with a wish that never materializied.
His face is hazy in the shadows while her frizzy
head of hair is slightly cocked to the left.
A frenzied assistant scribbles notes on her
ninety-nine cent legal pad.
She converses with him as I speak to the accompanist
They will not divulge their thoughts because they have
worn masks of superiority ever since they were proven
guilty. But I, I am still innocent until proven guilty.
