Honey green wraps the stone building.
We have a large, teasing view
as 20 watchdogs sit, listen, read.
One Judge has gone back upstairs,
" Your presence today, is dissolving
almost a year of wait and see. Thank you-"
Her banner drapes about us as
Faint voices, wave along with distant footsteps;
doors, open and close.
In snaky curves we wind
upward to an airy pyramid.
Smiles and introductions sweep the paneled room.
14 are questioned,
7 go to seats on the other side.
" You are excused."
our remains are released.
