Peek-A-Boo - Poem by Emer Lyons

Looking, not looking;
which is worse?

Yes, I can see your chair,
Your skin.

My peripheral vision
Warns me to be PC.

My downcast gaze,
May as well be the first

Stone cast.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Being Irish; we don't stare but we judge. A product of our culture.
