Summary

Dilated pupils are not the exclusive province of drug, alcohol or dim-light surroundings. Consider many are the result of an internal darkness incapable of seeing light that is illuminating.

Eye To Open Eye
by Odin Roark

How steadfast the gaze
At times gentle
Most disturbing
Other times angry
Most transparent
Few times without shadow
Most obvious

The dead see better
Say those pursuing truth
While in our face
Podiums support
Balconies present
Photo-ops portray
Power’s ever-dark delusion

How unfortunate
Certain dilated pupils
See not opportunity’s avenue of perception
But choose guilt’s dense chameleon of deceit
That illusion to light where none exists

Ignorance cultivates many who
Unknowingly cater to a fear partnership
Darkening their eyes
Avoiding insight
Embracing immunity to consciousness

Eventually becoming destitute
They can only watch
As honesty of purpose
Knows only
Eye to open eye
Integrity
Out of reach
For the blind of heart

And thus
The wailing of helplessness begins
Desperately wondering
Why is there no end?
