Requirements

Are you a violent man?

She asks

As she marks off requirements

On her list

A cross

A tick

A necessity of needs

 

For if you are a violent man

Your name will be erased

From all memory

The world will no longer know you

 

He hesitates

Begins to lie

In that moment

She sees anger rise up from the ashes of his smile

Fists clenched tight

He steps over the line

 

And disappears

 

Next!

She says

Pencil in hand

Are you a violent man?
