Wavelengths

How would I perceive the world

If I saw it in infrared?

Would I say, “You’re beautiful,

“Your brain’s energy haloes your head! ”

I’ll need no night goggles to  see

In the dark,  and the fearsome night

Will lose its hidden terrors, for —

It will all be clear and bright..

I can actually see seven colors,

And think that’s all there is–

But how many wavelengths

In between did I totally miss?

And further up and down the spectrum

How many ways are there to see?

How many parallel worlds are there

Unseen, and right beside me?
