I like the stern ones, old;

I pass them walking and say

Nothing.  They

Say less.  Their lips are pursed crags,

Their noses peaks, the mouths

Sealed caves where they hide

Rich, aging curds of wisdom:

Proverbs fermenting in their aching cavities.


The eyes, too, look

Sealed, but they arenít.

They stare straight

At nothing

and they wonít blink,

Lest it disappear or turn away

To whisper.

Sometimes I gaze back

At sternness and smile


As if to say, ďYes, I am here,

And you are, and we

Two are not the nothing

You are looking for;


And isnít it nice to be

Out walking?Ē

Those stern eyes wonít move;

Still they wonít look away


From nothing.

Soon, as we pass

Without turning heads,

Wrinkled corners

Turn upward on mouth and eyes,

And crags pull back and narrow

Earnestly to open

A face.
