(a response to the poem “Ode to a Facebook Photo” by Allen Samsuya, which appeared in December 2, 2012)
In this portrait, there are only my eyes
that speak of yearning to see
The stream of your stars
scattered in my galaxies.
I swim my eyes through the nebula
outside this four-cornered universe.
Nevermind the griffins and bountiful trees.
Let me see your abyss.
