Mrs Pemberton's Eye


Does not belong.

Look at him, a sore thumb
All a-weaving and a-way-wending.

I see you,

Blackened, star-struck and solitary
The lonely man, the lost.

I see into you,

I, the curtain twitcher;
I, the looker through keyholes,
And into souls

Show me your dark corners and intrigue
And I will gossip you today.

NOTE. I dislike nosy people, especially those that come to conclusions and gossip and lie about people. Mrs Pemberton is a character from the 'One for the Road' series I am writing.
