Who Is That?

Folder: 
Vintage Words

.

I encounter mirrors with great

fascination these days. Who

are you? That used to be me.

What have you done with her?

.

Eye to eye, we size up a lifetime

culminating in recent collisions

with cosmetics and mole removals.

.

I must keep working at it. Eventully

I will find that which is kindred

and authentically in unison with all

things once glimpsed in the mirror.

Wow!

What really struck the hammer blow with me were the lines, "I am unique. This space is mine." That cry of "why me?" How true and significant in theory and to the individual, but how absolutely trivial that uniqueness appears to nature, or even other humans. Simply brilliant, Lady A!

I Seldom Send Out Poetry Anymoe

I set up my printer recently and will run this one and send it to be published. "I am unique" is the cry of "why me?" absolutely hammer struck. The poet is the last to know that the written work is cool ~~A~~

Every story-teller bends the myth to his own purpose. that's why a Hero has a thousand faces
