Catch Some Wide Eye

I Dare You


they are not a window to the soul
not windows at all
but walls of many colors
meant to stop you in your tracks
second guess yourself
think, and think again
what you are about to say
what is about to fall out of your mouth
float across your lips
at me. the eyebrows stand guard
but the cornea wards off
the iris flashes bright-
pushing away your image
with an unwavering defiance.
the twins stare into your soul, and then
DARE you to enter.

One thought on “I Dare You

  1. this is excellent.
    It’s quite a popular subject to talk about.
    But you did it really well.
    That separates from the others
