This poem came out of the February 9, 2011 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired and sponsored by janetmiles.
What the eye sees are shapes:
heads and torsos, arms and legs.
What the mind sees are people:
allies and enemies scrambling in the distance.
What the gun sees are targets:
arc and altitude, focus and range ... bullseye.
It is up to us to decide
which vision to follow.
