"The eyes" (guestbook impromptu)     [poem]

the eyes know
though the nose be hid
mine is the realm
of pupil & lid
neither a fish
nor a frog am I
quoth the mysterious
luminous eye
mine is the realm
of jungli whelm
& forest cry
quoth the eye
mine is the world
of seeing furled
'fore the smallfry
allowed the eye
eyes appeared
with fishes first?
when fish are revered
the world's reversed
            in liquid thought
            you loose no sigh
            so much is caught
            by the luminous eye
            the eye knows why
            the brain may try
            do fishes fly?
            inquired the eye

for Priyanka Joseph.
