The Eyes Have It
Not in the heart but in the eyes people’s true compose you find
Yet see not the eyes when the heart wishes them to be blind
Perceive is to see with mind’s eye in classical parlance
But true understanding comes from ocular cognisance.
There are these eyes that always look high up in the sky
Then to the ground lower’d sharply while talking all the while
As though looking towards the heavens to get inspiration
While back on earth you know ‘tis just a haunting obsession.
