questioning apathy

2 Aug

Why does the
skinny, pretty thing watch?
He sulks away from his virgin and child; abandons the bundle of his life’s possessions.
So why (WHY?) does the skinny, pretty thing watch, silent, still?

    WHY???
    Love it. Now I have that question in my head.

    This is cool. I like the repeated phrase.

    I also like the repeated question, and the emphasized (WHY?).

    Some answers never come and trouble the mind. Are we better off not knowing?

    • chloeaevm August 3, 2013 at 11:30 am #

      That is an intriguing train of thought. My answer would be that while sometimes we might be happier without knowing the answer, there comes a point when we must be careful not to be blindly ignoring the answers right in front of us. Thanks for the thoughts and thanks for reading!

    I too like the repeated why – wonderfully expressive.

    Well done, loved the repetition – difficult in a short piece

    I wonder if she’s judging him, or if he thinks she is and is ashamed? The ambiguity has draw.

    Thank you for linking up!

      Those are both valid options. Alternatively (and this is what I picture), it could be a third party asking why the girl watches the sad scene without trying to help. This gives the title, “questioning apathy.”
      Thank you for reading, and thanks for the prompt!

    Nothing wrong with questioning. Great take on the challenge.
