calming the frightened deer – v3

eyes of our clients
wide-eyed, sweating,
panic in the hallways
steps of the court,
as an animal, a deer
caught in the woods;
nowhere to run
Wolves on the hunt

not knowing what to do
only wanting to run,
calming frightened deer
to bring them back;
regaining some composure
some semblance they are human
supposedly governed
by our minds, our reason

by reason, by thought
yet for an instant propelled
back eons of life, ancient;
returning to a more primitive state
where law has no meaning,
not knowing what to do
wanting to run, to flee
only wanting to run away
