Met with indifference (a poem)

Today’s entry, a rare example of the title coming to mind first. And yes, the pun is intended…

It is a practiced art, if anything,
not acknowledging what’s around you,
drawing your attention away
from that which you do not wish to see.

It’s different from tunnel vision—
more the inverse,
where you focus on everything
but that which you ought to see.

It’s no wonder some of us
gravitate toward the periphery,
where we may have an outside chance
at being seen.
