I roll them

I roll them
up, down, to the side—
the doctor
peers deep into my eyes
for imperfections


kernels ("featured poet"), Summer 2013

Well, I'm currently redeveloping eye symptoms. Time to rest my "windows to the soul" as much as possible, which means a bit less time at the PC.

  1. One of life's little irony's - cooperating with those who look for imperfections in us. Well put! And rest those eyes.
