Anonymous Urban Street Art, Downtown Eastside, Blood Alley, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

In the blink of an eye

I do not hear the refrigerator
In the quiet of my living room
Until its compressor turns off

I do not notice the darkness
In the blink of an eye
Until I turn my attention to it

I cannot know the depth of my being
Until I still the mental chatter
Distracting me from its presence

The obvious often remains hidden, until I take note.
