Looking into the eyes in this Magpie Tale
The ever watchful eye of dog.
The inverted image of a god.
A concept by which we measure our joy.
Finite and concentrated in a window of a dozen or so years.
Anthropomorphized prayers are lifted up with the hope that they are understood.
Who has the larger comprehension of human vocabulary — a deity or a canine?
Words are ever offered up and the eyes look back without confirming their value.
