A letter to public speaking

The frantic pace of fingers drumming on keypads

heart beating to an ever increasing furious pace

as all things rush along, movements and sounds flashing through tunneled vision

the world crescending in a whirlwind of sentence fragments

as you finally collapse to the end of a stuttery presentation,

how do people collect that cool calm authority they don’t actually have
