From His Part He Looks Left Handed

It’s a reverse mirror showing the real you.
Are you outside looking in or inside looking out?
Your nose is turned in the opposite direction.
Your forehead wrinkles slant the other way.

Speaking, the words seem to have a new control over your lips.
You listen differently too, the words sound recorded.
Everything you are used to is suddenly, Used Too;
Which one now is really the evil twin?

  14. funny, this reminds me of a pet i had who could never decide who to be. the sliding doors always suggested that there was something more he could pursue – something else he might extort from the family (or the cat, or the other dogs, or …)


  15. Love the way your meaning reverses direction suddenly, without warning.
