Found Lacking

May 5, 2009

Flaws.
Shortcomings.
Visible to all, flee from the magnifiers held up to their eyes.
Eyes hidden behind thick, intellectual glasses.
Head bowed, cower in a corner. Hide behind my hair.
An invisibility cloak.

Mindful of my utter lack
Of brilliance.
I call out.

Bonjour!
Hoping to impress, if even a little.

Shaking heads. Boredom bordering on
Disgust.
Not bothering to catalogue positives.
Pass over me. Yawning.
Because their interest has moved on.
