Exasperated, I Wait to See What You Want

From Use All Your Eyes to See, published 2020.

Exasperated, I Wait to See What You Want

Water glasses
crowd up to the shelf edge
squint down at me
cross at being disturbed
like a short-sighted person
peering from behind wavy lenses
brought out of a particularly good
attention-absorbing detective novel
by an unwelcome knock on the door
