We All Look Above


They stare
Their eyes burning holes into me
Some searching me
Others looking right through me
They all stare

Like starved hyenas
They bare their teeth
Waiting
Pleading for a sign of weakness
To pounce and tear me apart

I in turn
Join the legion
Bare my teeth
And look above
As does the one above me

We all look above
And await a sign
Maybe a word
We all wait
And pass the time with friendly repartee

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
