Even when open,
we only see a sliver
of the eye—

so much is hidden
for our protection:

your fears
cloaked in sarcasm
at the kitchen table
buttering tortillas,

our daughter’s finger
submerged in the lava
of a sunny side up egg,

and my strength
on the rocks
mixed with tomato juice
and Tabasco sauce

half submerged

a green olive’s red eye

bobs to the surface.

Subtle, very nice. A really nifty poem.
