Adie's Syndrome

JAMA. 2003;289(5):614. doi:10.1001/jama.289.5.614

A left pupil, fixed and dilated
this rare glimpse
of sins syllables will not speak
"Been that way for fifty years,"
is the response she gives. Running
a rheumatic finger against
her temple,
"My first husband
used to hit me
Right here,
But that was before
there were laws
about that sort of thing."
I cannot help
Losing myself in her
Hazel speckled iris
and the attending physicians final words . . .
"We just don't see this sort of thing
very often."
