Fifty Feet

stuffed animal
toy that is
one of millions
of Peter Rabbits
in blue waist coats
tells me there are
seven suns shining
and producing
seven shadows.
I am human
so I see only one
luminous orb.

To protect
my eyes
I do not look
at the sun,
but acknowledge
I see seven moons
when I observe it
traversing the night
and this is due
to my stigmatism
and my
corrective lenses
fail to hold
objects together
at distances
longer than
fifty feet.
