Cataract Surgery

I begin to see with new eyes—
the scales have been scraped away,
all the yellow, all the scum—

how bright the grass with new eyes—
a greener shade of winter yellow—
with the scales scoured away.

How brilliant Kathy’s eyes
their lively green unochered
through my new unblistered lens.

I begin to see with eyes anew,
all that tawny, between
only-alive and being, scaled clean.

“Cataract Surgery” appears in “Have” a collection of poems by Lee Robison to be published by Wordtech Communications under their David Robert imprint. Anticipated release date is November 2019. Posted in response to Ragtag Community Prompt cataract
