Your eyes are flaming golden lanterns

I glimpse at a distant revelry.

Then shrouded lamps,

Shadowy man as in a dream —

Watching me sway off balance

In my stupor,

 

Reaching for you.

Is there emotion

Behind that level gaze?

Do I sense you?

Does the body lie?

 

Who do you see?

It is said we never see ourselves

As accurately as others see us.

Are you willing to see me,

haphazard,

sizzling,

glacial,

magnificent?
