Tongue

Do your eyes see the same
pattern mine do?

Just like a Magic Eye
you stare and stare until
it becomes something it’s not.
Or something it always was /
you just never noticed.

I could never see it.

Instead I stare
at the checked
wallpaper in the bathroom
until my eyes are too
bored to focus and the
colours begin to separate.

Do your eyes see the same
blue mine do?

Names are the same. Each
letter builds an image.
Say them enough times and
they don’t even sound like words
anymore.

I repeat the noises
blending them together
back to front / front to back
until my tongue gets away.
