 “The Eyes of Beholders”(by Joe DiMino)
I’ve seen—in eyes of beholders—
Enhanced beauty; that is to say,
Beauty is more intimate
Than many realize, or are willing
To admit;
For the converse, that of
Devout ugliness, is more
The state of a soul
And not one’s eyes
And heart responding
To light—
“Where for are thou
My beloved?”—you say
You hide from me
In my own sight…
That is to say,
Every man
Is his own
Dark and light—
And every woman
The sum
Of his and her soul
Too safe
In the armor
Of old
