LOOK AGAIN

Look within,
Look around,
Look ahead,

up front,
there's a beam.
Look right,
Look left,
but do not
look behind.
There's so little
to behold back there.
Look. Look
at me,
there are really
signs everywhere,
amongs us,
every ticking day
walking the same roads with us.
Look upwards,
the clouds
do not compete
for a place
upon the sea of heaven
the stars,
among the shiny things,
neither the birds,
for beauty or worms.
Look down at your feet
then a little bit
behind, those
footprints you left
will be wiped out soon.
Look at the lines engraved
on your palms.
Look closely.
They chose you,
now, choose them back.
Look at the smiling face
before you.
How it brightens like
a purple hibiscus,
the set of white teeth
and the glassy eyes
staring back at you.
Look, look into your
heart.
What do you find?
What are you in search of?
Look at yourself,
picture it,
that which you seek
And maybe you
would find it.
When you look at yourself again.

MARY DOES NOT KNOW

September1       September ushered in the last of the rains;  the kind that fell noiselessly and without the fierce winds like in May and June. 

May 17        May was when I saw it, the fierce eyes of Soluja the mad man. it had been a cloudy day, one where, the blackness of the cloud thickened, breaking up now and then with thunder and lightening, darkening my mood like charcoal.
       i was sitting by the window of the moving bus, lost in thought, what people refer to as being "absent minded," when my eyes met the mad man's. i'd expected to meet a blank expression but what my eyes saw were alert pupils; pointy unblinking eyes  with an air of artistic craziness. almost as if he could see through my fears, past my boldness to dare stare at him. he could see all of my secrets and those eyes,  still haunt me till this day...  

June 5           if i turned, she would definitely know i was staring at her and i wasn't about to give her the satisfaction of being admired. low…
