“Behind Ones Eyes” – Poem By: Heather Whitley Gibson

ten commandments cast in bronze
airtight hope wedged everyone
picked up and thrown overboard
fleets of rulers, commodores
caverns of unexplored places
empty hallways, lost crawl spaces
real things are hid, to hide he tries
confusion behind ones eyes

Catholics, Ghilberti doors
realness forsaking, comfort joined
polished rocks brought on peasants backs
no shiny coins tucked in their sacks

unexplored places in a child’s thoughts
ruminations, closed quiet eyes
behind his own substitution

from a far away distance a shiny beacon
anchor overboard, reach the destination
it’s the honest one that has fallen behind
you can see the soul behind ones eyes
