Very highly recommended reading, This Open Eye: Seeing What We Do: Poems 2003-2005 is an intriguing and inspiring collection of the most recent verse of renowned poet Reggie Marra. This Open Eye: Seeing What We Do calls on the readers attention and intuition for the remarkable metaphors it so tactfully presents. This Open Eye: Swollen shut the right/eye seeps semi-clotted/blood that streams/and blotches a map of/hell across the three-/year-old face. Wide/open, the left eye/appears injury-free--/untouched, but/ultimately more/lethal./Through this open/eye the child sees/the world that has/closed the other.
