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.
