Analysing with an Agenda

Art by Mahmoud Farschian

To most guys I hardly exist.
To others I am a puzzle with rare pieces.
Some think me a diamond in the rough.
A few think me to be a piece of art;
That needs to be carefully studied
to be fully appreciated;
Stripped layer by layer,
to understand the piece in its entirety.
One thinks me a Russian Doll
with yet unrevealed surprises.
Yet the only thing interesting about me
Is an assumption, an idea, a chase of what could be.
When the search is over, you will find
that what you searched for does not exist.
I am merely the object of your study
onto which you project.

Mai L. Nissen, February 2012
