My Eyes

Fear is not the basis
for my negative reaction,
not completely.
It is the unfairness of an only option
that is invasive, uncertain and painful.

While technology
invents artificial intelligence
to drive cars, fly airplanes and grow babies,
a needle in the eyeball
is all they can come up with
for Macular Degeneration.

Not good enough.
They have to do better
than that before I’ll consent
or trust their judgement
when it comes to eyes,
especially when it’s my eyeball
they are talking about.
