Unless There are Eyes

from cnnee.jpg

Controlling it all

I snap the photo

The photo I make

It’s seen as I like

A word, a gesture

A jacket and bag

I see it through eyes

It’s how I like

Controlling what’s there

The clothes and the hair

The hair and the shoes

I entertain

The screen doubles up

A lens and a window

The crack covered glass

I laugh, its on film

The need to be there

My clothes and my hair

My butt and my eyes

Pretend to disguise

Not hide what is mine

No private, unseen

Not Live? I can’t thrive

Unless there are eyes.
