Self-Portrait in Mirrors

Over the years I have stared at myself

In the mirror, seen

Millions of reflections

Of four-eyed me, millions of

Glances and sly misdirections.

When I was younger I looked into

A smoky mirror

Dimly lit by sconces

I kissed the air put on lipstick

And adjusted my glasses.

I looked in a mirror today

Ten times I bet

Sometimes I saw an old lady with frizzy white hair and specs

Sometimes I saw me

A million times I saw me.
