SMILING EYES
(9/29/17)

forget
the physical
form

the social
stratum

past
a certain age
we look
for something
more

a glimpse
inside

whether or not
they are windows
to the innermost
region of self
we gather
telling information
of someone
from their
gaze

fear

anxiety

madness

are all rather
apparent

rather
avoided

we look
for a more
comfortable
glow

a sincere
shine

the attraction
begins there

we grasp
a hand

hope
for the best
