While the opportunity avails itself randomly,

It happens often while shaving . . . .


I guess it’s the mirror that takes me back in time

Not back to the good times but to past ignominies

As the critical analysis of agonizing introspection

Dices these scenarios into painful emotional portions

Each part hypercritical of the man in the mirror

Accusing him once again incising him to the core

No forgiveness available or redemption proffered . . . .


No emotional aftershave available to soothe the pain.
