E - The Eyes Have It


THE EYES HAVE IT


“Your smile is disconcerting."

He smiles.

“How so?”

“It reaches your eyes."

“When eyes smile I know

the smile on the lips is true."

He smiles.

“And why is that unsettling?” 

“It makes me giddy."

He just smiles again.

With his lips.

With his eyes.
