Word of the Day Challenge — Manifesto

in the confined spaces of her mind there exists

a world, complete,

all she has to do is capture it

on paper then share it with

the world.

if only they’d see,

see what she has so carefully worked out

in the confines of her brain

they would understand.

why can’t they try?

their eyes,

unflickering and impassive,

run across a few lines

then click to the next page

eh, too much trouble to wade through

reality is messy

best to stick to flashing ads

and celebrity fluff

the world’s lost anyway

just a matter of time

why won’t they see?

i’ve got it all worked out

i’ll make them listen

you’ll see
