What You See

bodyart5

assuming you are
less affected then
suggests discretion
or notable resilience

while delightful waves
wash over me in
self-referenced motes
of gaiety

gratification
crawls into an
impervious withering
of bewilderment

there’s nothing to read
in you with your glee
registering an
oblivious blank

all doubt affecting
you now plays the
fool of me; is this
all that there is?
