“Looks like your vision’s gotten stronger,”
she tells me, flipping the page of my chart
forward and back.
“Really?” I ask.
“Yes, in both eyes.
They’re the same prescription now.”

For six years,
I was imbalanced —
one eye somewhat stronger,
one side of my brain slightly weaker
than the other.
But today,
I know my body is finally manifesting
the balance I’ve been seeking.
