Eye

A Poem by Allen Palmeri

Somehow evolution made
a human eye with complex
lines, dots, and colors in an
iris fit for an ID.

Somehow evolution made
2 million working parts spin
inside an eye’s infinite
beauty like autumn ablaze.

Somehow evolution made
light strike rods and cones so that
an electric signal moves
throughout the brain for insight.

Somehow evolution made
the family of pupil,
cornea, retina, and
lens dance like dadaism.

Somehow there is sarcasm.
