BEHIND THE EYES
(4/2/15)


we are
educated

authoritative

always calmly
under control

our voices
projecting strongly
for all
to hear

in our heads
we seem
to operate
at high levels
of competency

efficiency

but at the same
moment
there are those
who perceive us
as underinformed

timid

just a bit
manic
and scatterbrained

whining
and mumbling
incomprehensibly
beneath our
breaths

as they attempt
to ascertain
our meaning

if there is
any meaning
to be ascertained

finally
the meeting
draws
to a close

parties depart
in different
directions

all feeling
just a bit
better
about themselves
