I am not Portia

Mercy is the pretty twin, but I always said
justice was smarter and more important.
The wicked should be punished, left in the midday sun
to wither, crumble, blow away on the wind.

Maybe it was envy, the private knowledge
when I go to throw a punch
it will slow and hang in the air like an unanswered question,
a bubble about to burst.
Time will stop and it will never connect.

Maybe it was the blindfold,
the sword and the scales;
something to hold and something to believe in,
something to offer beyond open hands
and a willing flank.
