Should the eyes be the window
to that other place why is it that
we look in every other place when
we meet that perceptive other
can it be false can it be misleading
are there other things that we can
discover by seeing that physicality
by not observing the soul can you
really see me

should the eyes be the window
to both in and out what of the mouth
the hands and there abouts those
other aspects of the extremities
the one’s that call us could they
possibly be something other than
the self could they give indication
to mind and health

should the eyes be the window
then let me not see the sorrow the
pain that they bring to me for these
are the things that I see in the eyes
of those passing me by
