A view


Each place I go

I tend to see the snippets.

What lies beneath

Is yet another story, retracted, 

Held tight to the chest,

A lidded box.

The owner has thrown out the key.

I am a guest, so I graciously do not pry. 

I see, but I do not pick or save a souvenir.

I take only what I am given.

A view.

  1. I really like this. it all coming down to ‘ a view’. it is good that we recognize that is all that we initially have of a person. and even getting to know someone, it is only a view they are giving.
