Dense tobacco smoke plumes
nervous twitching in the room
portable typewriters ring
carriages zing, pressing ink
smacking paper rolls, ribbons
smudge, lips mumble, curse as
eyes blink, tense air teasing
head scratching, blank stares
minds plunged, absent terms
turn facts, evidence relevant
blunt fears vacillate, indecision
division of derivative argument
then torment as results wait.
