If the eye were a person, would it see?
Or would it remain blind to avoid redundancy?
But evolution’s not like that. An extra organ comes in handy.
When threading a needle, for instance.
Or when you are lost in a hurricane.
The day has millions in summer, as many as the flies
mobbing your mouth as you hike across the meadows.
Whatever it is, the eyes have it.
