Illusions

i can't see my face in the mirror

stare hard, scrub my towel through my hair

put on my glasses

i can't see my face in the mirror

touchthebackofmyhand

i can't see my face in the mirror

am i really there?

holdmybreath

(i can't see my face in the mirror)
run my fingers down the glass

lean close

is that my face?- (sweet relief)

breath out

. . . i can't see my face in the mirror
