one eye blind

low creeping thoughts

inflames my lust

 

others’ goods my envy

 

misery a pity; no one else’s 

intoxicating wealth

 

distilled so finely that it can filter 

through anything

 

for it does not need blind innuendos 

nor broken truths

 

it can exist free and wild, running from 

a teary eye to a blind teary eye

 

sometimes it just wants parts of my detached body

 

half-libel for repeated errors,

thwarting another 

 

assassination attempt on myself

 

one eye blind decisiveness of a person 

ready to sacrifice their life for 

 

a half-obscure cause

 

the one eye blind conviction 

I must do something about 

 

other people’s inexcusable behavior

 

and that I may have to do it whether 

they like it or not

 

derives from the assumption that the 

world is quickly turning to dust

 

one eye blind to the suffering 

liberated by decay

 

willfully disobeying with feet 

of clay enthusiasm

 

yielding hardness is their very core

 

suddenly it seems that all have 

become one eye blind

 

somehow now lost in the consciousness 

of a mortal danger

 

how vigilant they are in darkness 

with one eye blind to light

 

forever sacrificing a present to a future good

as only as the one eye blind do of colors

 

irrational one eye blind faith, they want to go 

backwards instead of forward

 

believing they’re always seen as the best, 

and scorn a guide for their empire

 

for there they’ll reign, always one eye blind 

to things deeper than skin deep

 

one eye blind is the process of leading me 

gently back to myself 

 

what is essential is invisible to the eye.
