NINA’S DREAM

 

The left eye’s pupil is sluggish

I’m not sure how much you can really see

Please cover your right eye

Now your left

And, between the two?

 

One clear, the other distorted

One gives green only, the

Other, red & green

 

Like Christmas?

 

[Each sighs, takes a moment]

 

Please continue

 

One eye sees it true

The other, not

 

I need more information for the refraction

 

Okay

 

So, what do you see?

 

On one side, the faces are shifting lines

On the other, they’re

Clear, hard, set

 

And together?

 

All normal, all fine

 

Your eye’s not right

I’d like to dig deeper

 

It works

 

As long as you have the other one

 

Exactly
