About the author:
Steven Brewer, while a doctoral student, no longer had time to study Esperanto. But he could find enough time to write haiku in Esperanto, which he would exchange with his brother by email. This led to a fascination with the contrast between the utter flexibility of the rules of Esperanto and the rigid structure and minimalistic limits of haiku. Currently Brewer wears glasses and posts haiku daily at

Brewer lives in Amherst, Massachusetts and is Director of the Biology Computer Resource Center at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.


Authored by Steven D. Brewer

The question is, "Do you really need glasses?" And the answer, "Just to see with..."

Only someone who wears them really knows what the world looks like without glasses. When a child begins wearing glasses, other children want to try them and marvel how the world looks different. But this in no way reveals the experience of someone who needs glasses when they're gone. Typically, you're always wearing your glasses during the day. And losing your glasses can be terrifying -- even dangerous. But in some everyday moments, often during the night or in the early morning, you can explore without glasses and find another world.
