The face of wisdom

Where my eyes go looking

my attention follows

I told them not to go there

and I pull them back

but where my attention goes

other eyes can sense

and they go and their attention goes

when I pull my attention back to me

other’s attention is pulled to me

we can see each other

what do we see

do we see who we are

I don’t think so

not with these eyes

they are constantly flitting here and there

drawn to whatever momentary attraction

touches the radar of out of control eyes

quickly let’s put together a face of illusion

to show people

we can fool them

we can even look wise can’t we
