Readers

Some read words
some read into words
some find phrase in gesture
signal in act,
dismissal, indifference and come-on
some read word in silence
and vice versa
and some know nothing
not of word or run-on line
oblivious to rhythm and meter
the syntax that reveals
the pause that hides;
they just read eyes.

  1. "they just read eyes" - yes. and some cover their eyes and hide face. but still can be read.

    Beautiful.

  3. So whom do you prefer? Those who just read eyes or those who are very conversant with rhythm and meter?
