Updated on May 5, 2016

eye opens

an eye opening for the first time

is worth how much?


think of all that you ever saw,

remember the cruel competition,


recall the weak one dying

a thousand trillion times,


and look on his face

of abandonment and betrayal


of the good, and the just

--his mother coaxing him.


a world where good boys

fall asleep and think of happy


things. imagine him now facing

whatever has walked alone as a child,


a man, or any of the countless

sentient feelers--of all that ever was


and ask


is it worth an eye first opening?
