Crowded Expectations

Crystalline chandeliers
rigid tall mirrors
Faces demonstrate expected attention, rapt even
“I want to know what you have to say.”

Watching people react
Mundanity captivates
Minutiae enthralls

Crystalline attitudes
rigid tall perspectives
Minced words and winced expressions
It is my turn at the mic.
