She came in dragging her eyes like they were two tires,
Hanging from her cracked trunk of a body.
Their blackness seemed to incriminate us all.

We gave the woman her time.
We are tolerant you see.
We are tolerant

Straightening her back as much as she could,
She mumbled defeated

Shooting her eyes at everyone who,
Believed her defeated:

I've been trying,
to find my, nook in the mosaic for some time now,
Tiles, colourless tiles, piled up inside,
A growing scrapyard,

Tiles upon colourless tiles, piled up inside,
A growing scrapyard,

But my time now ends as quantified as,
An office space in a bigger picture,
These stones we believe is an image,
We hope it is an image
We pray it is an image
We know it is an image.
