Ode to Contacts (Visibility)

I see and write

with small, clear circles

in my eyes.

Without them

I'm blind, my perception is negated

Without them

I'm the old me,

who couldn't see opportunity.

With them

I'm myself. I see 20/20

and read my surroundings

as words on pages.

Like a book,

they open and close my day-

they begin and conclude

a story with a thousand chapters.
