I Am. . .

(a self-portrait)
watched as the mirror distorts the page
through which I observe as I write these
 words in this notebook before I sleep
my escape as a rationale for dissection
from angles askew to a direction I’m in
the relative motion deploys my illusion
so yes and yes and yes again is given
to questions never asked aloud only
imagined in conversation not allowed
parallel trials’ debated possibilities
enacted within inner questions
which reflect back answers I desire
a refracted notion implied by minute
intricate inlays between convulsions
of my mind and yours and hers and his
(August 8, 2013)
