Poem. Life Cafe, PORTRAIT OF THE VANITIES

Looking so hard
so intense into his face
attempting
to know beneath the skin
let me in
searching line and wrinkle
dimple pimple
eyelid iris eye
hairline hair
is that where you are
ear nose mouth
is that what you are all about
chin and ears
where do you hide your fears
searching for the inner tears
looking for the lies
looking for the kind man
the generous heart
YOU is what I want
I look at you
you look back
reaching for your soul
your old old soul
reaching back to find you
just a moment
making contact
I saw you
I draw you
drawing you out
that’s what a portrait
is all about
