Through the small
round mirror into past
and present, I see a segment
rendered clearly. Thank you
for having me.

A refraction point, the image
of myself gazing back,
found like a toy prize in
another person’s set of tokens,
a box of shared memories.

This eye, this body,
traveling through undefined
space, in need of a velvet
rope to tether to the ground,

this vantage I call unique,
shared by many, documented,
cross-examined, defended,

metaphysically concrete,
constantly searching,
inevitably human and partial,
recounting the story of
another and yet myself.

My book of poems, A Five-Year Journey, has recently been published by Dreaming Big Publications.
