but you fool her noticing both and continue down the path to home

eyes that dare with amusement and knowledge of pure exposure
small arms down to painted nails
knees drawn to chest in dress – white
bent elbow too thin on the pose
tip of lips smirk.
a jungle of leaves in the garden
are found falling from the canopy sky
into a pool with gold fish
wiry algae and lily pads
circle the ring droplets from ricochet
spinning white-yellow flowers
while she
on shoreline sits and watches you
waiting to see which view
attracts your eyes
your heart
the most.
