What we do not see

.

eyes carve first perceptions

with unconscious fervour

wilful imaginings

prejudicial clarity

sculpting senses

defining smiles

setting frowns

enticing judgment

denying hope

adventures

 

baited by beauty

we entwine our lives

around what we see

foolishly

upon the hooks

pleasing to the eye
