Seeing With Clarity


it’s only been since March
you protest – just nine months
not a lifetime wasted

not as if I didn’t want them 
repaired but a day expended
thus seemed too much to pay 

Heaven’s sake sunglasses don’t 
make that much difference even
if they’re tinted reactively 

one wonders what I missed since 
seeing this with great clarity as a 
miniscule perversion of shame
