New Eyes

I thought I could see
not well of course
the world blurred in the distance
but I made do.

with glasses (borrowed of course)
it was the best I could do
for vision in the distance
I thought I could see

then what do I do?
I go a year in distance
thinking that I could see
foolish, of course

looking back at that distance
thinking that I could see
I would change it of course
that’s exactly what I’d do

now that I really CAN see
with glasses my own of course
the world is sharp even in the distance
and looking seems all that I do.


Poems and I aren’t quite friends, but for whatever reason I dig this baby right now. I can see it, of course, even in this distance.
