Trying to Read

my glasses have a mind of their own
or as many minds as there are pairs I
need for different purposes a screen
a challenge or sharps and naturals in
piano music or simply trying to read
a breakfast newspaper book at lunch

I often walk around without glasses
or set them aside at the dinner table
I hardly need to see to eat enjoy soft
eyes taking it all in not spelling it out
or reading every word I chance to see
as if fearing I might miss something
