An eye: the one part of our body that craves physical flawlessness at all times.
The slightest touch from intruders may lead to tears, irritation and pain.
An eyelash, the delicate protector of the perfectionist,
is too barred from entry, and if it does penetrate,
the eye does everything possible
to destroy it.
The wonderfully convoluted
mechanism of betrayal and selfishness
governs our body and characterizes our minds.
And we make the ultimate mistake of believing that
the two are unrelated. Then again, who can blame us?
We’re human, after all.
