As I Watch

Presenter’s power point scans, spans
As moments un-peel time
And the words,
bold and blank,
Slipping in ribbons of
Around dark bodies in gray places,
Tongue-tied brick walls,
Faces, gazes…
Around foggy features
And thousand-tongue frozen gestures.
As blank words scream in soft silence
As faded wounds
in dark silence
Through the valleys of the past
Through the allies of the cast…

As I watch
Oh, as I watch in darkness…
