Eyes are an open gate
A concession one shall not bate
Mutinous or laughing
Dull or rankling
Warm or colder

Squeezing eye tint
In a flickering glint
Anatomy or flesh moving
The awkwardness of a feeling
Are but physical expression
And so pale a compensation

When this wonderful mystery
Offering itself without modesty
Ineffable, brilliant, silent
For an hour or a moment
To those who can certain evening
Pausing and receiving
