One Eyed Jack

by Chris Sorrenti

Aside from the dirt and grime
suddenly made visible
as I’ve never seen them
rich and deep
or maybe forgotten
in the creeping deterioration

Until the next operation
a month away
a careful balancing act
between good eye on left
cataract right
a new kind of exhaustion

Told the doctor today
in the first follow-up
the left one’s so good
wish he had done both
he laughed
see you in a month from now
