|Tarsier (Oh, to see in the night!)
Taking into consideration that
a bat can fly blindly by
radar alone, I figured that
someday I might be able to navigate
infatuation's winding wilderness. Alas, the
eyes of love are not nocturnal--
razor sharp clarity by day, useless in the dark.
Yes, it's an ACROSTIC, but I didn't want to bill it as one. I think it's pretty good all on its own merit. It just so happens to be in acrostic format. :)

best to employ the completely blind hands of lust for navigating the darkness then
I learnt a new word with your ironic acrostic today -- the reading 'n misreading of human behaviour is often because we look with the daylight-eyes of reason instead of the dark 'n deep original mind of the heart -- the poet is one who brings a fresh focus to the everyday, fresh eyes to the mundane, here your tarsier eyes were big 'n shiny reflecting the moon, thus mooning us all with your darkly wit -- nicely done light poetry
"reflecting the moon"
actually i don't think that's literally possible for these creatures?
yes, a new wprd learned today for me too :)
lines 3 and 4 .. sublime thought..
wprd = word
Yeah... I tried to make it "deep" and yet, light. I guess my arrow hit its mark--YAY!
way to go Fletcher, i mean Archer
i have a tarsier glued onto my backpack
Excellent artistic form, excellent idea and execution. I am surprised that you don't want this form to be one of the big points. It's not easy to do well.
ps - 'useless in the dark' is why God invented HANDS! You know you're already blind, Aforb! haha
