In Passing

eyes snap to eyes unknown and i am unfurled

as though

face to light

sea to stars

 

stumble across unknown features

unexpected opening breaking across cheekbones

curls of rose froth part for shell-teeth

 

and i think

if this is human then what are the rest of us doing

 

she moves on.

i am left glittering to face

the next traveler

stardust in my eyes
