reflectionary period

i stared at
the person walking
towards me
not realizing
it was my reflection
on the windows
of the bland building
on the corner of
nowhere and here

i get confused
because the person
is not the same
person i see
my dysmorphic
perceptions
at odds with
the image strolling

i need to try
and smile more
it only takes
two muscles to smile
but they are
emaciated while
the frown muscles
are chisled from
pure marble

i need to find
a way to rectify
what i see with
what is really there
which is funny
because i spend
so much time trapped
in this skull
that i know every
sinful indiscretion
better than the
back of my hand

i just stared
at the reflection
of myself
walking towards me
and nodded
he nodded back
and then we both
went out separate way
into a nameless building
on the corner of
nowhere and here
