Eyes Touching Eyes

by Zachary A. Horn

There is
magic in
conversation.

Eyes
locking
and darting
away.

Searching
for self
in mysterious
pools.

Hoping
for understanding
fearing
rejection.

Sparking
or fizzling.

Hiding
behind
words
our eyes
betray.

Or revealing
meaning
words alone
cannot convey.

There is
alchemy in
conversation.

We are
changed
by each
interaction.

Reacting
sparking
or fizzling
away.

Words
hiding
or revealing
meaning.

Eyes
touching
eyes.

Endlessly
finding
one
another.
