Looking to See

10 May 2019

By Philip Kuepper

The painted eyes at the prows of dghajsas
are the eyes of Osiris,
eyes that stare down the Evil Eye
of danger, of accident;
eyes of good fortune,
eyes that see beyond time,
to smooth the voyage,
keep calm the seas,
eyes to keep
a lookout for creeping
doom.
