She Had Eyes

She had eyes
And feathers around her head
And when she breathed
She startled the bed
She had no dreams but
Her life turned on the dawns
And she gave her thoughts
To those first few yawns.

Oh but I could not see
I could not be there where
She gathered her strange fruit
I had to know why
And still did not see it
And part of me died

She had eyes
But I was blind.
