proof that blue eyes do not protect against curses

maybe he lost his mind and his health

when he sentenced me to life in a hidden country

and maybe i lost both of mine as well–the difference was

my eyeball couldve popped out of my skull

rolled past his feet and under our kitchen table

still connected by ıts bloody cable

and he wouldnt lower himself to get it

or even take a breath from yelling

possibly it would stoke his anger

he would grab my wrist, shake and toss me under the table next to it

demanding that i clean the eye and reconnect it
