Heart Attack

I recall this
from Matisse.
Eyes weary of winter:
I’m afflicted with vision anxiety: Have I seen enough of the planet's sunny parts?
No! Not enough, not nearly enough, and time time time time is rushing away:
already it’s too unsafe to see what I could, what I should have seen ages ago.
What I deserved to see!
Alack!
Left behind after dark at the bus stop,
my eyes are trudging.
Just walking I outpace them.
