THE GLASS BETWEEN MY SELVES

****************************************

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN STARTLED

BY YOUR OWN REFLECTION IN THE GLASS

URGED ON FIRST BY AN UNQUENCHABLE THIRST

FOR A GLASS OF WATER

(FROM THE KITCHEN)


THE OTHER SELF GAZING IN FROM THE OUTSIDE

THE SUDDEN LIGHT FLASHING OVERHEAD AS A SWITCH IS FLIPPED ON

OVERHEAD IN YOUR HEAD


I HAVE STOOD ROOTED TO THE SPOT

MY BLOOD ICED OVER

GOOGLE-EYED AND MY MOUTH

FROZEN INTO A PERMANENT "O"


DID I SUDDENLY SPLIT

BECOME TWO-PERSONED

ONE OF ME GAZING IN FROM THE OUTSIDE

THE OTHER GAZING OUT FROM WITHIN...

AND WHO'S FINDING HER WAY???


DID THE WINDOW BECOME A TESS-ERECT

AN OPEN WINDOW

THE MEAN TO DISCOVER THE IMPLAUSIBLE?

TIME TRAVELING IN THE GLASS

BETWEEN MY SELVES.
