Blind like a Sea
Blind like a sea roaring off shore
or a tree waving from the top of
a mountain – no one has climbed –
blind like ants in the shadow
of a step, or a temple – a day after war –
blind like a crosswalk or a keyhole
in the night…
blind as a bird in a storm.
Blind as a winner – losing again…
blind as sunshine – a screen to a
Blind like worn shoes of a dancer,
or a statue directing our way –
blind as a lamppost in daylight –
blind as a window draped in cloth –
blind like darkness you have brought.
