Blind

once upon a time in a place
with dark mysterious scared eyes

sharp knives
and no money
poor lost blind people
from a poor lost blind village
came to a poor lost blind town
carrying their curiosity 
empty stomachs
empty pockets
and cheerful childlike stolidity 
ignorance

inside teeming markets 
spilling vegetables, clothing, steaming food
invisible naked predatory children circle, hover near smells

watching eaters eat
the quick and dead

blind people laugh i live in the dark 

surrounded by light

hearing gold workers hammer
ruby, diamond, sapphire, emerald jewels

scattering gem sound seeds
