Eyes

Pic: Self clicked

they look at me ,
as if i am not the stranger
i think to them
i might seem to be,

given the strange
territorially adversarial situation,
that we
find ourselves in,

and in that
moment,
of their
innocent right,

which they
exert,
without any
perceivable might,

i humbly
fall prey,
to those six living
seeing eyes,

that choose
to see,
not
what i might seem,

but what i am,
and could be,
beneath the garb
of my superficial skin.
