Whisper, 2012
V. Ortiz Vazquez

Bright as the day 
His confidence
Walking tall for his batch bears no wrong doing
Predetermined sex
Downloaded expectations
“Boys don’t cry”

Sprung from love
Her sensitivity
Watching those around
Her mark reveals a list of don’t
Whishes of a boy tramples downloaded expectations
“Girls don’t do that”

Walking about
Unknown to one another
Distance companions with similar nature
One believable, the other one not
Society’s rules

Predetermine disposition
Learning behavior
Up for debate
Slowly he begins to make his move
Trust ensue no rejection
Without suspecting
She bare her mark
Not knowing what, how to feel
Silence descends upon the body

Laughable his story, he thought “boys don’t cry”
Miserable her short life, she “asked for it”
Compose, controlled with confident 
Satisfied with the cruel intentions
In conjunction with low, clear voice whisper
