Driftwood Deerface

Notice what you project
On faces you see in the otherworld.
That deerface in the driftwood
Did he surprise with his antlers
But disappoint with his dark eyes?

Notice what you project
On faces you see in the otherworld.
Did his deepset eyesockets
Hold a sorrow and fear caught
In the glare and stare of the world?

Notice what you project
On faces you see in the otherworld.
Did those noble ears rear over
His brow, that driftwood prow
Crowned by ancient root antlers?
