Wonkie Eye

by Steven Gowin

That Chelsea Watson, the Seven at Seven anchor
Yup wonkie eyeball, her left
Would meteorology had been a better choice?
Weather girl, mostly profile shots.

Mr. Jennings, high school chemistry
Wonk on eyeball boy
You'll be taken as perv that thing straying about
An unhappy graduation.

When you find a butcher who still cuts meat
A cow eye lifeless and pale
A bit of bone flung by band saw, or pig blood squirt
A butcher nevertheless.

The bad optical, crossed or dead or lazy or stray
Spells malocchio, the evil eyeball
Steer clear, cut it a wide berth, stay away
The wonkie eyeball bids but ill
