1. Tell Him I have eyes only for Heaven / as I look to you / Queen mirror / of the heavenly court.

    Jay DeFeo inscribed the back of her painting The Eyes with this stanza from a contemporaneous poem by Philip Lamantia. The artist used the first line as the full title of the work for several years before it became known simply as The Eyes.
