Illegally Blind

Illegally Blind

A Poem by Taji Herbert


Open your eyes

Your 20/20 vision is impaired

Look here

You don’t see what I am saying

The electronic pulse

From your pupil to your brain

Just hasn’t sparked


Blind to the world around you

While staring it in the face

You can’t make you if you are here or there


Here smells different

There sounds different

But in a state of eternal blink

Your senses are paused

With no play button in sight

It all seems too serious


Illegally blind with 20/20 vision

You’ve lost sight of it all


No hind sight

No foresight

A picture is worth 1000 words

But you’re at a loss for verbs


This is the Nation of the Illegally Blind
