Those eyes focused and determined,
across the globe, it's a face that
knows no time because pain dillutes time,
pain freezes time, pain suspends time...
you give those eyes something
beautiful to look at, and for a little while atleast,
It goes away until the illusion is no longer valid, no longer acceptable,
of suppressing the pain.
Africa, South America, Asia, Mesopotamia,
the South Pacific, Los Angeles.
I've seen that face before...
