Mine was in ophthalmology
Early in life, ages sixteen to forty-two, helping people see
I fantasize what their optic nerves processed
A pilot could have every horizon impaled onto his retina in thin lines like rings in a tree
A marine biologist could blink away drops of every ocean, but never her own tears
A surgeon’s cornea could reflect pulsing blood vessels of every walk of life
These specialties mould us, shape futures, and allow us to really SEE what is all around us.
