EYE
If this window were a seascape,
the red car in the middle distance
would be a ship hanging
halfway up a gray wall of water.
I pick up “eye” and carry it around.
It turns when I do, bends,
gets up and down, looks
under, over, and inside things.
It is attached to “brain,”
which can be fooled. Last night I walked
behind a man who was walking faster
down Walnut Street. He shrank
until he was the same size
as television people,
then disappeared in the end
of a green tunnel. Eye,
how shall I be well
and artfully deceived today?
