Daily Contacts 15: My Glasses

Camille by Pissaro
From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impressionism
I don’t see double like my wife does
Without my glasses the edges of the world
Blur into vague shapes of indistinguishable
Faces smooth into suggestion
Colour randomly bleeds into the background
I am reminded of impressionist paintings where
The brush views its subjects through

Tears, the air as liquid as emotion.
