Blinds on the windows. Are they keeping lights in

or sights out? Eyes inside are watching, but they

must be looking inward, because the view out is

blocked. Eyes outside are looking too, but they

must be watching the exterior, hardly penetrating

past the paint. Who is lonelier? They say that

those who look only inward are blind to the world.

Don’t they also say that the eyes are the windows

of the soul? Can’t you see? Those same blinds that

shutter us in also prevent outside eyes from smiling

in on us through the glass.
