She is speaking (a poem)

Inspired by the projections in this video on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lszrDRmK-Cw

She is speaking
She has something to say

She is speaking
Maybe no one is listening

She is speaking
She’s going to get it out some way

She is speaking
She is pensive, then animated

She is speaking
The camera captures motion, but no sound

She is speaking
How long can you focus without blinking?

She is speaking
Sometimes you can make out a smile

She is speaking
She is thinking about that day

She is speaking
She is projecting to the back of the room

She is speaking
She does not let words get in her way

She is speaking
She does not have to raise her voice

She is speaking
She has something to say

She is speaking
Maybe someone is listening
