Losing our lenses - Jason de Koff

Sometimes I remove my glasses,

to see a world of Monet,

the impression of a sunrise,

rather than a high-def dawn.

The sharp edges are softer,

the spotlight not so bright,

the shadows not so foreboding,

with greater blends of color.

All those at a distance are strangers,

each with their own opportunity,

to love or hate,

to satisfy or disappoint.

If we all could take time,

to lose our lenses,

what could the world be like?

What would the world be like?


Jason de Koff is an associate professor of agronomy and soil science at Tennessee State University.  He lives in Nashville, TN with his wife, Jaclyn, and his two daughters, Tegan and Maizie.  He has published in a number of scientific journals, and recently had poetry accepted in other literary journals.  His short story, "The Gods of Indianapolis", was published in 2014 in the Mythic Indy anthology published by Well Done Marketing.
