Face of a Woman Stained with Tears
A Kinetic Motion
The youthful figure I resent
Simple space filling
Projecting my own infected mind
Harboring jealousy – It lingers, this image
Strengthens maybe subsonic motion
Instant data Karma transfer
But... New York City amplified?
Where something happens to appetites
And louder motions projected
In auditoriums … and I’m disturbed
At the thought of it going on longer
A black Rorschach spread out to cover my face
Wrap my head infusing me with…
Not Hate! No! Never Hate!
Not that! but just
A quantifiable resentment.
