Glimpsed, glanced, I want to be seen

Not with your undressing eyes in our

lustful moments

Not by the eyes of a stranger nor their

unwanted wolf whistling lips

Not with a hurried peek and an excuse me

shuffle on platform two

Not the possible sight through your

oversized tortoiseshell sunnies

Nor the awkward side to side dance of over

politeness in the frozen aisle

You may see me but be assured you've not

seen me

I myself have not yet seen its illuminated

totality

Not yet

It's growing, learning and seeking

I'll be more than what you simplistically see

I'll be heard and

I'll be seen
