on dec. 21st,
the ocularist poured algae into what's left of my eye. it hardened after 2 minutes and formed a molding. next visit he will take a digital pict of my working blue eye. 3rd visit he will paint it on the acrylic. and the last, the ocularist will fit my new eye covering, sealing my socket. a new look designed.
hanging on the wall of his office was the egyptian hieroglyph THE EYE OF HORUS
and a salvador dali print, THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE EYE
(which i'm having a hell of a time finding online — anybody know where this is??)
dr. danz is 5th generation ocularist.
when i wear the patch i'm creating a persona.
but, mostly i like to bring out my beady little dead eye out into the air.
as a war wound. to be entirely me with nothing to hide.
