Happy Ending

On days like this
I can almost feel
the titanium slicing
its way across
my optic nerve.

Which is a grotesque way
of saying that maybe
I worked these eyes
too hard this time.

But I won’t let an aneurysm
get in the way of a night
snuggled in a bed
weighted down
by the books I am
currently reading.

You can’t take the
ending from me.
I’ve had a reading headache more days than I haven’t this year. And I love it.
