Seven-faceted eyes

worker bee eyes

Here’s a poem of mine about eyes:

Like the Eyes of Insects

 

Insects solve the day-night tradeoff

with their seven faceted eyes.

The fruit fly, even the hated housefly

peer into the solution.

Like the eyes of an insect,

the seven facets of the eyes of God,

the seven faceted lamp

the caulkers of their seams

the caulkers of your seems

traders for your good,

traitors for your goods,

the warriors within you,

the great crowd within you.

Hearth cake overturned

a heart cake,

now the end is on you,

the envelope of the abyss,

licked and thrown into the blue box.
