Three Points

Giving the award.
Giving the award.

Hot and cramped,

stuck with a

squeaky leather

jacket and a

wobbly table

under the weight

of a husky

and haughty brute.

He proves more

capable than

anyone could

imagine that day.

I stare at the

lines on the page,

wondering how

this word

could not

possibly mean

what I thought

it did.

My neck cranes

under the

weight of

the bronze chain,

better than

most this day,

but not

better than

myself.
