Crazy People Write Crazy Poems

believe it or not
i would read more poems
if my eyes would allow it

blind in one eye
wearing the other one out
trying to read read read

see see see everything
through my only good eye
going bad bad bad

fast fast fast glaucoma 
rule rule rule as king 
through my father's loins

    I'm so sorry you have that horrible thing, Barbara. We all have such awful trials. I sit here night after night with my back burning! I don't know why it does. But I think the eye thing must be worse. I sure hope you can find a miracle!!
