Tell Me: A Saturday Poem
Turned away, my lover murmurred,
I actually think that others often see us
more clearly than we see ourselves.
Into her neck I agreed.
How can any of us do otherwise?
A story is a re-telling, every word a reflection
of something other. Little good it did Narcissus
to stare and stare. And stare.
My lifetime, I wonder, and have wondered
how it shall end. Holding I am lovely!
to a mirror.

Better that someone else should see this.
And tell me.
