Who sees behind my eyes

self-portrait-with-eyes-closed-1991(1)

Who sees behind my eyes
That mask with many I’s
Who spells the truth as lies
And grieves when no one dies.

Who hears behind my ears
That note that disappears
Who meets his death with cheers
And happiness with fears.

Who feels behind my heart
That self that falls apart
Who ends at the start
And arrives to depart.

Who speaks behind my tongue
That little piece of dung
Who spoke, yet never sung
And blessed right as wrong.

Who thinks behind my mind
That precious gem and find
Who leaves the gods behind
with no words or thoughts – defined.
