Eyes

you’re skating on a sheet of ice
slippery as disguise
easy on the eyes
rough on the inside.

you’re dancing across a mirror
reflecting trees
supporting geese-
I’m weak in the knees.

my glassy surface intrigues you
pulls you in
drowns you deep
narrows.

my unblinking gaze holds you
draws you closer
plays the strings
of your heart.

but an eye is an eye
is I
and one wrong step
will shatter me
and you.
