Which specs? – small stone 19

Cheap supermarket, thick framed reading glasses;
A bit smeared, wobbly side arms,
Offering me clear print, enlarging the task in hand,
But beyond, everything is blurred.

Expensive optician prescribed, designed and fitted,
Vari-focals with clever lenses and strong sides,
Enable me to multitask and see the wider view,
Focus here and there, and further on.

But I am tired of complex layers
Looking close, seeing ahead and all in-betweens.
Perhaps today I’ll go with simple lenses,
One thing at a time, and let the rest blur.
