RDP Tuesday: SHARK
I am afraid
of your eyes.
I know that they are just like mine, so what is there really to fear?
They are dark, clear, you have blind spots
just like me too. Two eyes, that is all they are.
No monsters, no demons, nothing wicked hiding in there.
So I suppose the reason
that I am so deathly afraid of your eyes
Is that if I spend too time watching them,
I might not see your teeth as you open your mouth wide
until it is to late.
Word of the Day Challenge: DYSANIA
is anybody there?
You aren’t still sleeping are you?
I’ve brought you flowers I’ve brought you wine, why are your eyes still closed?
The entire world is up and about
Birds are singing
planes are flying
the dog down the street bit the cat from two blocks over and now
the owners are starting a Facebook page for people who hate their neighbors.
I can stand here all day and wait for you to get up
to open your eyes,
to laugh about how stubborn I can be, how unreasonable I am
when reality doesn’t suit me and this business about you just laying there
when an entire world is out here with me, waiting for, you doesn’t suit me at all
So how about it?
Just sit up, take the the caps from your eyes, I’ll unstitch your mouth and bring you
some fresh clean clothes and then we can watch the world go by, together, like before
if you would just wake up.
