arrow

he said look at it
I’m looking at it I replied
do you see it he asked
I’m looking I don’t see a thing
keep looking he said
you’ll see it
I’m looking I don’t see it

then

I stopped looking

and I looked

not forcing
not trying
letting my eyes
see for me
not preconceiving the idea

i just looked

and then

I saw it

it was so obvious
i don’t know why it took me
so long to see it
why I didn’t see it before
it was right there in front of me

he said
now when you see them
you won’t see anything else
you’ll know the other stuff is there
but it will always be the first thing you see

damn
if he wasn’t right
now when I see them
it is always the first thing I see
