Cold-Blooded: Why I Hung Up Last Night and Blocked Your Number

Had I known the connection between the iris and the frontal lobe, I would have:
invited you on a midnight walk,
pointed at the North Star,
asked you to focus,
sat you down on a rock,
tilted your head back,
stood over you with a flashlight,
studied your pupils.

I suspect
I would have found more contraction furrows
than crypts
in thy frugal eyeballs.
