Blurred Absurd

looking up from her work
at me
to see


she can see
through me
from my eyes
how I scan
this scene surreal

as I stare back
from hers

at a self portrait

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


Another *best* self-portrait poem, Al.

who do you see
when I see
you looking?
my canvas
is your blank slate


I found the title interesting which of course drew me to this piece. I like the message in the poem - such union is hard to come by but when it happens, it can be pure magic.

I think some honing for even more brevity and eliminate "self portrait"


"how I scan
surreal scenes
stare back
and see


It is beautiful vision and I think the "self portrait" is evident without it needing to be said. Lovely work. ~Pamela
