The Eyes Have It

The Eyes Have It

We all have perception~
that comes with
inspection

We survey and
scrutinize all
the day
long~

Gathering
a vision of
what does
and does not
belong

I see this in the eyes
I encounter
no matter
where I
go~

The eyes do show all;
some look as
they might
overflow

The eyes will elude~
what the
words may
preclude
when in the
company
of old
and new
friends~

Look at the
eyes and
follow their
trends

The mouth may
not transmit~

But the eyes
always
have
“it”

  1. I like this, I like how the rythym speeds up and then slows down, and the hit eith the title at the end is cool. I had to read this aloud the second time, cause its definetly a cool sounding poem.
