Fifteen Seconds

 

fifteen seconds

maybe

could be more

could be less

but for about

fifteen seconds

our lives intersected

you encountered my

photo, word or post

and something of me

was met by you

for somewhere near

fifteen seconds

 

and

you think you fully know

me

are able to pigeon-hole

me

or use insult to describe

me

 

all from the merely

fifteen seconds

where our lives touched

 

yet

youve scarcely known

me

have no pigeon-hole to hold

me

own no insult that can define

me

 

fifteen seconds

its hardly enough time

on which to devalue my life
