Yet Another Poem in the Long-Running Series About the Summer of 2006

July 7, 2006

the benefits accrued
by even moderate
visual acuity
seem almost infinite

Sometimes just
looking at things
makes me so happy

People walking
to work in the morning
carrying boxes of donuts

The little plastic baseball figurine
sitting in white gold dappled sunshine
on the windowsill of somebody’s office

A ladybug on my desk
just sitting there in the morning
I picked it up and put it in my potted plant
