Onlooker

It’s said to be better
To be a participant —
More glorious, and honorable —
Unless
You are not built that way.

Some are made to be reflective,
Refractory,
Mirrors of what they see:
Nearby, but always outside —

For those, for us,
There are times and things and people,
And the feelings
Assayed to convey

We may not see the onlooker,
But their eyes and heart

See us
