LAMENT: to watch

Standard

The camera watches,

The eyes behind

It judging and

Bored

 

This is not an insane asylum

Nor is it a prison;

Places where most are made

Into numbers

Becoming meaningless

Besides their pains,

Their anger

 

This is a library

Why the camera?

 

always on

always on

To watch

For unlikely events

That nevertheless occur

In this world

 

There are cameras everywhere

Not just in the library.

 

What does this make

The institution

This insidious watching

Do the inhabitants become

Meaningless here too now?
