An oversimplification she explained
with the wave of a manicured hand;
it’s perfected the art of holding a cigar.
She goes on, twirling through thoughts

with the wave of a manicured hand,
and an eye keen on detail and broken logic.
She goes on: “twirling through, thoughts
bogged down by dormant racism.

And an eye,” keen on detail and broken logic
her voice crescendos, “an eye for an eye,”
bogged down by dormant racism
for long enough. “When did we lose this?”

Her voice crescendos and I, for an eye,
My two at least, can spy her dark bible laws
for long enough. When did we lose this
ability to see a skewed argument or point?

My two, at least, can spy: her dark bible laws.
Has she perfected the art of holding a cigar,
the ability to see a skewed argument or point?
“An oversimplification,” she explained.
