[Objects of Mythical Power], V

There's a curable kind of
blindness
when one gets old
Magni helps you
get real close
teeny tiny letters
could read them all

There's another kind of
vision
one's not born with
Bino helps you
see far ashore
Jesus' portrait on tesserae
on Hagia Sophia's wall

There's a distant kind of
friendship
one may have lost
objects always remind you
when brain roams off
Mickey and Minnie
or, Magni and Bino
come when call
