The Drama with Pop’s Eyes

I want you to go with your pa to the
eye doctor,   bobby,     she tells me.          drive him
down about quarter of eleven so
he can get his eyes di-a-lated and
doc straus can look in there real good cuz he
said somethin’ last month about your pa’s eyes
comin’ apart   —   scalleria or somethin’  . . .
anyway, listen and tell me what he says.

the optometrist is curious to know
how  episcleritis  related to
allergies had become a threat to pa’s
ocular longevity   —   the right eye drops,
he says,     can fix that in a day or two;
cataracts is a threat,   but that’s long term.
