"...I wish none of this had happened." "So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."

is drama what it is? is it
real? Do we care?
Perhaps that's why it's drama.
My head
is a lake
a shimmering tree
rippling with present and thoughts
of speech.
My hands are full of ink.
Drama, the worm, brown
sneaks it.
Instead of polluting the lake,
it is a pretty, ugly rock
jutting up from ripples turned into waves.
A big, funny-looking bird sits in the tree.

The author's comments:
I dislike drama in my own life. Disharmony and gossip between people is never truly enjoyable and in the case of the former, mostly never wanted. The worm, the rock and the bird are all representations of drama, and how it disrupts the young life.
