Losing Sight of Tomorrow

I will give you my left eye Robert.
It does not matter to me
that you are 34 years my senior
or that its use may be short lived.

I will give you my left eye Robert.
It is not more --
It is not less than
what I have given before for love.

I am not in love with you Robert.
Don’t worry.
I will not be stalking you running
around with my bloody eye
in hand offering it to you –
Squealing Take it – Take it!!

It is only a metaphor –
It is only the sun coming through my curtain.
It is only me being me.

It is just me losing sight of tomorrow.
