My left eye is not serving me well.
Ptosis, more a nod
than a wink.
Posterior Vitreous Detachment
of a year past.
Floaters, specters, prismic ghosts,
visiting in daylight;
perhaps, too, in twilight—
I cannot tell.
Ophthalmologic access is within reach
across and through this murky sea; yet,
I appear and behave as a pirate
on a desultory ship.
