Progesterone in Poetry – Can it be done?

I got some progesterone in my eye
And now my vision is slow
My acuity is hungry and yet
Not sure what to eat –
Except for potato chips
Or perhaps chocolate
Followed by potato chips,
Chocolate, and
French fries.

Each eyelash wants to take a nap –
But each one also wants
To take a nap, separately,
But with the cat.

I got some progesterone in my eye
And now my eyelid is much heavier
Than normal,
And my eye itself
Is slightly miffed
At my heavy, cheerful eyelid –
But just too apathetic
To address the issue.

I got some progesterone in
My eye
And although
I have plenty of work to do,
I’ll gaze fatly out this convenient window
And not look very hard
At any one thing.
