The Eyes: A Snapshot Guide For Beginners (2003)

1. How to unscrew desire from a scene.

Eyes filter,
let things fall
the catchment:
the unsexual
construction rubble,
refuse of convenience food.

2. How to read the writing of the body.

(a) Eyes make magpies caw:
the glint of metal,
fool's coin
upon the ground.

(b) Minefield
of merciless eyes,
scanning & sizing,
flicking switches.

3. How to milk opportunities from a scene.

(a) Eyes can push
through, like
cancerous politician
to the waiting limo.

(b) Eyes slide
like abacus beads,
computing fear
in faces.
