    In my office today,
    I saw a girl with lightless eyes.
    I checked my books
    to learn
    what might go wrong
    with cornea, iris, lens -
    how the light
    through a child's eye
    should filter and bend.
    Not much came of this
    or calls to the opthalmologist.

    I did discover
    the girl was beaten
    by her father and mother.
    did I not get my optics right?
    Or does the soul's prism,
    once knocked out of kilter,
    no longer
    refract the light?
