One Look


Poesy plus Polemics

one look can lift hearts
a glisten of passion
can capture the moon

one look can break hearts
a glisten of sadness
can darken the sun

in the eyes of a lover
our perfect reflection
moves us to laugh or to cry

in the eyes of a lover
the evident truth of us
moves us to pride or to shame

love as an accurate mirror
takes in the emotional light
gives it back as a gift

an image sublime in its candor
an honest depiction of
otherwise private identity
