The water was running fast…

And loud from outside the window:

‘’they’re collecting years like they’re sticks and stamps.’’/

In my bathroom there’s a large mirror

A sink below

Oh you’d expect…

My face, an object of the mirror

Skinny-dipping in the mirror

Needs a lie-down

Or maybe a tracking down

But tries to be creative &funny/ like I should

By throwing a silencer

Into this Russian roulette game

Oh features…

Eyes, nose, mouth, ears…

My hands, first in the air

And then like birds

Landing from the mirror to my face

All my senses

Tied together…
