Quizzical Eyes


The hardest part is the ‘look,’
the quizzical eyes
when they hear.
Their uncertainty is the loudest…
“What does this say about her?”

Silence follows.
Sentences are reviewed before being spoken.
The editing process is upgraded.

A small shake of the head and
the judgment is done,
the calculation over,
the distance begun.

The correct numbers of internal steps
are taken backwards.

The gap widens.
