Distance

In a glance I predict
what you think of me
condescending interest
in likely untrue stories

about you
or maybe

your eyes are fixed
to the middle distance
lost in yesterday

or last year and are disturbed
by my eyes when they bring you back
with wonder and question

as I look at you then through you

to the middle distance
