Observations of the Ocean:

Today I saw a boy 
Standing in an ocean of people 

I thought he was the most 
beautiful person I had ever seen 

In an old fashion way 
in the way a house has windows 

obvious 

But I was wrong 
when the light hit his face 

or his lips curled 
Into a smile 

I saw that he was beautiful 
in the way an octopus is beautiful 

strange 

once you look you can't look away 
and you don't know why 

He was just standing in a plain white t shirt 
and he didn't move 

but sometimes if you looked over just right 
you could catch his smile 
twisted, crooked, and just a bit off

yet beautiful
