IMPRINTS

The imprints that people leave
on hearts and minds
are indelible
unpleasant sounds
reverberate
for ages.
How do I convert
hatred to indifference?

What you said to me
decades ago……..
that condescending look
unbridled arrogance
sharpness of tone
acts to make me look
insignificant
are indelible.

subsequent attempts at
detestable diplomacy
feigned friendliness
disguised disgust
half-hearted Hellos
do nothing to conceal
your hallowed
hollowness.
