Latest Post Joker (2019) and Real-World Violence from the Perspective of Someone Who Hasn’t Witnessed It by Tyler Wyatt McAlister

With burning eyes and dejected heart
I watched the world recede from me
Through ageless dimensions much farther apart
Than opposite corners of infinity.
So pleading forgiveness with a genuflect
I repeatedly pray for individuality
But it seems that faith and human respect
Has fled all minds in my community.
THE OUTCOME:
A superficial character I have composed
To mingle incognito at an average pace
Fearful where I go, careful never to impose
For my anonymity is too important to erase.
And now, I watch myself recede from the world
After hard earned acceptance into this place
I stand outside, a solitary girl
Where parallel lines all meet in space.
