Your eyes look out at me.
No thoughts echo in my mind nor words speak aloud to me.

I hope these are okay, Pris.

Best wishes,
Annie

He said, "Well, blow me over the head," so I did.

Well, all blood and eyes I am.

Didi Menendez said...

Three chickadees on my head.
Two trees on my eyes.
I ran out of cantaloupes today.

Collin said...

Before I wake, your face
fractures, eyes multiply
to see every secret thing

is this what i see
this is a world of knowing
and knowing, made entirely of eyes

Pris said...

You guys are amazing! From the sensual to the lyrical to the surreal to gore. I love it!

look within the broken glass
and see me looking out
of yesterday

Avid admiration
Patterns perception
Nullifying into nimbus negatives.

JimK said...

Two minds in one alone in the dark
spawn the roaming eyes
of yearning.

Pris said...

Jim, I like!

JimK said...

The roaming eyes are a symbol
in an art piece I did. I wonder
if they are used that way
elsewhere. The eyes that are
not tied to the obligations
of your one body...

ButtonHole said...

Eyes like benedictions like snakes like holes in threads
invert a dream and
when we run
we start at the other end of sleep

She told me I'd been born
wearing a caul.

Pris said...

You guys are coming up with some great ones!

the negative diagonals back through
her history, first kiss, first yearbook,
new notebook blinking its bright white empty first page.
