Eyes Wide Shut

The Lilly that I know has three eyes.
When she’s awake and aware,
she rarely keeps more than one eye closed at one time.
Involuntary and voluntary blinks,
opening and closing,
faster that you can imagine.
Letting the light come in,
leaving a lasting image.
If you’re lucky you can see what she sees
when she closes them.
