I can see clearly now

Here's how it goes down:
1 I walk up to the eye test chart, cock-sure of my 20-20 bestowal...

2 My left eye takes 4 or so lines up before it can distinguish a p from an f...

3 I walk away with 20-50 vision.

4 which is quite a bit worse than my mother's...
5 who's in her mid-fifties.
and had a rogue bungee cord severely damage her cornea.

I admit I am sufficiently humbled, and will just have to get cutie specks.
yours in meekness,

Yay for glasses!

Last year when I went in for my check-up, my eyes were surprisingly worse than the previous year. This year I skipped the check and I'm almost afraid.

But I do love getting new glasses. I should wear them all the time. I just need to remember.

I bet you will be the cutest banan! (that is not a typo)

It was dad with the bunjee, not mom. But you see worse than both of them I'm sure.


I want to carry you
and for you to carry me
the way voices are said to carry over water.

Just this morning on the shore,
I could hear two people talking quietly
in a rowboat on the far side of the lake.

They were talking about fishing,
then one changed the subject,
and, I swear, they began talking about you.

Billy Collins

that's all, folks
