Likeness

mirror

Other
people
are
mirrors.

The bothersome bit
is that even people
we don’t like
reflect us back
to ourselves.

I’ll hear a comment
that makes me bonkers
because it is unkind
and
because I know
I have that
in me.

That person’s mirror
is a warning.

But
this
beautiful
blue
reader
mirrors the very best of me,
that curious geeky girl
who still walks
down sidewalks
reading.
