 The Other


I've bee trying to copy
someone else's style
their way of doing things
it looks right
and correct from over here

but as my eyes sharpen
hone in on focus
perceptions change
it's just someone else
staring back at me
wondering
who's that strange person
looking over at me

we meet our thoughts halfway
and smile uncomfortably
at our profound stupidity
weigh-up what just happened
get scared
and run away
