Cagey Eyes

she hides her eyes
and her eyes
hide she,

not sure why, not sure when
but i see now, the pungent
poison’s deep,

vanished somewhere beneath
the shell again, where
the brights can’t
reach,

disturbed, for damn sure
can’t be bothered to
wake or sleep,

won’t believe in a love that she
can’t see, and love can’t find
a way inside to source
point of the
bleed,

she hides her eyes
and her eyes
hide she,

hid all the sharp things ‘cept
for the sharpest one

that’s me.
