How Do I Look? - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You wait until I am in complete focus,
Before you start the video.

'But this makes no sense.
People will label you a mental case.'

They do that anyway as a precaution.
Begin to film seconds before I jump.
I want this to look spontaneous.'

What about me?

'What about you?
They never question the videotographer.
That's why you were paid.
How do I look?
Here he comes.
Get ready.'
