Fiercely Obvious

Peer into my eyes,

really, look,

What do you see?

compassion you say

Are you sure? Is it sincere?

No? I thought not.

Care to try again?

empathy you say

I would place that with compassion.

Give it another go.

disgust you say

you would take

that to person

as you are currently

the object of my

vision, if only

disgust were an

accurate assessment

of what is

encased in these

optical wonders.

Yes, one more try,

You must. Peer into my eyes. What

do you see?

nothing emptiness

an abyss

you declare.

Ah. excellent. you interpret

the entity behind the eyes

well.

But you had to actually look,

Didn't you?
