Mock Trial

intemperate heart
calls you forth
into focus,
you stand
impugned, and
here you shall atone

How you do that, write and create a shape with your words blows my mind... that's without considering the content, which is as powerful for the mind as the shape directs for the imagination. Wildly good and so talented.

The first thing I noticed is the shape, so my first question was whether or not it has something to do with time. It seems to me that a single grain of sand, 'alone,' has been separated out for trial. And, I gotta second Rob's comment. It is interesting that the heart is the one to capture here, the accuser. Perhaps there's a moment in time, singled out by the heart, standing trial here...

I find this psychologically interesting and difficult. The heart as captor and accuser seems original; usually, the heart is not captor but captive. Provocative!

One must have to be fairly unimpugnatious to write in hourglasses. I enjoyed the content as well as the gavel head.

I got impugned once...
Until I found out it was
actually a Pekingese.
