 A view

 You were stark naked
looking for your contact lens
and I bent down
to help you
and you, blind as a bat,
never even noticed
that it wasn't any little gleam
under chair or table
that was urging me on
but your strange new shape
crawling on all fours
like an animal lost in the woods
and the beast had almost broken out in me
when your sight was restored to you.
