Spectacle Lenses (rev)

Charley Edward Hinkel 1979 (Canton, OH)



Neither here nor there,
It's easy to usually forget they're even there.
Open my "eyes" in the morning,
Close my "eyes" every night.

No crap, I want to "fit in",
or be "cool" 'cause I wear them.
But sight, in my professions is essential.
Don't want to be blind without them!

The problem, it's understood, is that as an actor (as one of my opportunities), lenses are the one prop that stays the same, even through different acts.

Contact lenses don't do it,
been trying,
It's very important, and it can't be explained, easily.
They just don't work.
