Finding Focus

Water Study by Richard Reeve

I knew a man

who never wore glasses

but would pull back

the skin alongside

his right eye

until he found focus.

I knew a man

who claimed he

hadn’t let his emotions

control his life.

Funny, for different reasons,

he looked as strange

as the one who

wouldn’t wear glasses.
