Seen and Unseen…

*

We see the other’s body clearly.

Lips move.

Eyes open and shut.

Lines of mouth and face oscillate.

The other’s body expresses itself as a being in action.

Yet the other, itself, remains unseen.

*

The other does not see its body in action.

If it looks in a mirror it immediately begins to invent itself.

The other, though, sees our body clearly.

Yet we to it, as it to us, remain unseen.

*

If our unseen sides could be seen,

we would live in a new world.

*

But we live in the seen world,

with its plethora of distinct misunderstandings.
