Eye for an Eye

imagine if we swapped
an eye for an eye
mine blue, yours brown
and we saw the world
through one of each
would it be two tunnels
ending in different stories

irreconcilable?

two streams down two mountains
cavorting and somersaulting
subsiding in two different lakes
one blue, one brown
and we being half of each
becalmed as dinghies
we must just lie here
limbs outstretched - two starfish floating
looking up at two sky patterns
our faces burning
always under one sun

extraordinary
