April 15, 2017: Moments

We are defined by moments
moments that can scare
can die
even can make us fall. 

One crucial moment
bent on rushed fear
closed hand gestures
thoughts
and cruel finger pointing.

Yes, they stare.

Oh, how they stare. 

Silence.
Let's take a moment
to listen to the silence
of those stares. 

See the painting?
Ruthless with class
an elegant piece of art
critiqued by voices
and obnoxious stares. 

Glass shattered...
...scattered.
