Thinks & Inks

By @astrid_hartman

Rough Eyes

Rough eyes,

Like sandpaper, 

I can feel them 

Looking me over 

I can feel them

As though your fingers are already 

Touching 

Me,

Your eyes are touching me instead

Irritating my skin 

With their rough stares,

Though you never did know 

How to do anything gently
