This is excellent, I like it for its brevity and I can relate to it too. I've had glasses fall apart on me!
I love this. I get the sense of panic at being unable to see.
I've been there too. I love the simile and the dislocated form of the poem
that's why i keep plenty of spare pairs......
I'm not the only one getting old!Ha!
That reminds me. I need to get glasses.
soooo clever...hihih...really good:)
Those few words pulled me along, breathless, knowing something was changing.
crafty green poet - they don't fall apart as much as self destruct!
brian and carole, thanks!
paisley - as expensive as bi - now tri- focals are, not very easy to do. I refuse to do the medical tape thing either. :)
Anonymous brother - you'll ALWAYS be older than me. :)
dave, etain_lavena, tumblewords, thanks!

short and sweet. though i'm not sure how sweet it is to have your glasses falling apart. ^_^
K.M.Ryan - they're only threatening to fall apart.. hasn't happened. Yet. :)
What a creative take on a mundane event!
I love how the poem is literally "falling apart" along with the glasses...I really enjoyed this!
my backyard - Thanks!fledgling poet- It seems like everything is falling apart of late. :)
I loved this little 'moment' -- well written, and great fun!
I've enjoyed this refreshing short poem along with others on your page, especially "Fractured" and "Zero Gravity."Cheers.
