Measure For...

by Maureen Glaude

Today I’m going
to have a measurement taken

not of my bodice, waist and hips
for a new spring dress
nor of my in-seam for new silk pants
nor my third finger left hand for a gem

no, today for cataract surgery
and replacement lenses
I’m going
to have a measurement taken
of my eyes

oh, have fun with that. i'm thinking a new dress would be your preference?

Wow, you learn something new every day. I had no idea that the word "measurement" could be applied to the eyes too. And this poem certainly measures up in expressing the concept.

oh, i hope your surgery goes well!

A unique perspective - I also didn't know eyes were measured. I hope all goes well!!
