Write about what you know
Don’t go reaching for the stars
at least all the time

Find meaning in the seeming mundane
if you focus on the details, insights
can flow out of them

Observe people’s faces
observe especially, the cast of their eyes
a narrow, pinched expression

Observe the cast of a stranger’s eyes
Do their look down, so they avoid your face
Is a grown pasted on them, or is
a genuine expression of joy

There are fake smiles and real ones
We all know that. And people hold secrets
on their hearts that stay hidden

but we know exist

Stay close to home and you will find out
