...and they lived happily ever after. Smith & Lady: poets, artists, photographers & adventurers.
Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )
 
   
 
 

WHEN EYES WERE TERRIFYING

WHEN EYES WERE TERRIFYING

To see, I disregard
the ever present bridge
of my nose, or it drives me
to mental vertigo and
permanent cross-eyedness

If I unfocus, let still, hairs,
or maybe creatures, float into view
jelly monsters in a fuzzy picture

Vision’s a recurring thought,
a whim of ticklish accounting in
my slippery mental mudslide

Were I to amputate and dissect my eye,
would it be some onion yellow
roughage layer rubber ribbage,
isolate pages from the knife?

My horror is gone
with the daily application
of drops and lenses

But I remember when

eyes

were terrifying.
