Critics. Their Sad, Toxic Hobby
Critics with checklists on clipboards
Clicking off criticism
Checking off complaints
Cliques of critics
Coffee clutches clucking, critiquing, condemning.
Content to be discontent.
No, vindicated by others failings, deficiencies.
Silent “ah ha's!” Proof!
Unforgettable failings. Again.
Cataloged obvious communal concerns
Finding fault, faults.
Storing them away as treasures, tools, trophies.
Biding time to unfurl the banner or truth.
Not bothering to clarify
More damning evidence.
More notes taken.
Isolation... all around
(both guilty and victim)
