regret

has eyes like a husky - blue startling blue
like ice incongruous in just dusky coloring
to call for eyes of amber golden brown
some rich but autumnal hue
sharp enough so bright to cut but ringed
in darkness at the center
rude to stare but looking at or through
staring to see and seeing fall
effortless into depths

only wanting to know if I want cream with coffee

smokes and half my age but oh those brilliant eyes...
