Heavy morning fog

Turns misshapen cedar trees

Into monstrous gods

Odes to Injustice

I spent several hours waiting around the courtroom today. Perhaps these may express some sights and sounds of this misspent day:

1. A commentary on the plea agreement system:

Quiet Consultation

—–

Attorneys whisper

Secret, sotto voce, songs

Sibilant hissings

Singing with the A/C’s sigh.

Thus his fate is decided.

2. An examination of the contrast between expectation and reality:

Resounding Thud

—–

With that gavel fall

Shallow party dreams collapse

Back into the hole
