Window Shopping

Desperate eyes
nearly bugged out,
scanning the scene
honing in, determined
to find that visual delight,
that one rare jewel
that catches the eye.

But with gaze steadily fixed
upon such lavish trade-
deliberately displayed
so rows of treasures,
and grander designs
seamlessly intertwine and
coveted jewels, disguised.

Perhaps, though
upon further inspection,
and disappointingly so,
what bounty is sought
is never in plain sight,
but is rather locked away
safe from spectator view.
