People wearing glasses in the museum café
Remove them and smile, so to look the right way
When posing for pictures, for better or worse
Historians ponder which look they had first.

Glasses off.
Snap. Snap.
Glasses on.
That's that.

They know in the future how they want to be seen
With good vision, as nude eyes are more clean
Than bifocals, with smudges easily detected,
Tainted, impaired, what a foggy perspective.

If we could achieve resemblance unblurred,
we wouldn't need photos or paintings of words.
