Hoping To See – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“My fascination with letting images repeat and repeat – or in film’s case ‘run on’ – manifests my belief that we spend much of our lives seeing without observing.” Andy Warhol

Hoping To See

To see,
that is indeed a thing,
to really see what is at heart,
when all we usually do is 
say we see while hoping that by the
time we do see we can claim 
the moment as if we have 
always seen when we know
perfectly well we haven't seen
anything at all because we are 
looking in the wrong way and
looking in all the wrong places,
seeing something but yet 
nothing of any substance that
is at heart.
