NaPoWriMo Day 13

Another Oscar

Across the ocean
another Oscar
cries rivers of denial,
before the dry eyes
of the victim’s mother
tears long replaced
by the numbness of grief,
she watches and waits
for a verdict
in this trial
where privilege
overshadows the tragedy
each character playing
the role of a lifetime
before a black-robed wisdom,
and the idol teeters
on invisible feet
as he stands
on the brink of judgement.
