Glasshouse

Glasshouse

I opened my window to see
Seven sisters
Watching over me

Across the sky,
Like dozens of eyes
The stars watched

When I awoke from a restless sleep
I turned my head
To look at you all

Who would watch silently
Move about
And never let me sleep without

Who would give sight of splendor
Yet bar me from being
An observer like yourselves

Watch me toss and turn
Watch me dream of nothing
And do nothing about it

Beyond my walls and ceiling
An abyss unending
Stares back at me

A house of glass
Windows for them all
To examine me from afar

So many windows open
With so many eyes
Blinking and pulsating outside

Bloodshot and blue-shifted
Clusters and singularities
Outside my glasshouse walls

It is a marvel with
Ten thousand eyes
Forever watching over me
