How I See It - Austin Hehir

Beauty
Is something that I constantly, agonizingly
desire.
Rummaging across streaks of slumbering sky hanging
gently across the wind.
In rainbows,
dissected and bare like a cleaned fish.
Their colors fiction to light,
Distilled into deception.
A piano man rattling the marrow of the
keys until his soul is
silent.
How I see it,
beauty isn’t what it is,
But it is how you see it.
