Mirror Party

Mirror Party

Your mirror and my mirror have a party
a joyless party
They invite their mirror friends

They thought they had plenty of stories

but once they were together
they saw that among the hundreds of stories there was
little variance

A face
A face

Teeth in a line
Dark hair
An eyeball
Finger stretching an eyelid for white of an eye
Finger prying off the lash that climbed in

Tears and then water tossed lightly on the face
Yeah bodies
Faces mostly

Naked skin
an appendage

Still the conversations went on plainly for hours
geez, those faces
because it felt so good to be around other mirrors
that understood what it was like
