John Doe

When you look
into the eyes of
La Giaconda
she smiles back at you,
but if you look
at her mouth
she is not smiling.

And so it is
with the little boy
in the corner,
- that if I look
at him directly,
he disappears
but look to one side
& there he is again

and
like the eyes of the Mona Lisa,
his stare
follows me around the room.

◄ another time, another place

pardon my French ►
