words on justice & befuddled judges & magistrates woolly-headed decisions.

Author's Note

Carola
i'm trying to loosen up & be a bit more abstract, not easy for me. 😐
i'm having a go at 'free verse' style, so i don't mind if you tell me it needs editing. 📝
not really sure if i enjoy free verse writing, so i may not pursue it much further.

ahahaha i can't believe you are trying abstract and free Carola!! good on ya says i! ;) an examination of silence ... challenging to be sure .. so many times our silence is, as you say, not so silent ... there can be anger, frustration, objection, and dissent ... all in that tense and awkward silence ... your poem actually clarifies my own love of silence in your first couplet ... the state of "no mind" ... empty ... resting .. love the contrasts in your poem ma'am .. and with that .. i go silent

my only disappointment is prefacing the poem with what it is...
i usually will not read until after the poem...which happened here...and i was able to see a metaphor for for people who just never fight back....but some....like Maggie in "Everyday Use" have those silent victories.
really love "A vacuumed brain"---
Wonderful write....you may not like writing in this style...but you do it quite well.

the quietness in judgment is far more cutting than the aural type I have an aunt that used to give the most stirring "look" she said volumes in a glance and her single raised eyebrow was the stuff of zen priests I used to tease her about it until of course she raised it at me:) this is a pleasant thing to watch you evolve in your write and I would have to say I like it! the convey of it is heard in my ears Carola I am not the biggest fan of the justice system but it is a rung higher than the street corner variety
