231/365: Blinded

Drew after laser eye surgery

I dreamed about blind people and colon cancer,
about how too many of them might die young
because they can't see the blood in their stool,
and I woke up wondering
if maybe we're all accidents of inevasible, inborn myopia,
too close to our own lives to save ourselves
without intervention.
