false face 8 (mirrors of our words)

reflex_ion-7

And what if I 
tell you I'm not going to 
tell you about me,
that I'll just 
"let my words speak for themselves"?

Puh-leaze!
How pompous!
What hubris!
As if my words were ever 
really mine to own! 
As if I had any control over their choosing!
As if they had an owner! 

As. 

If. 

I could put them on the page and then—
in the very next breath—
they are not my own—
not mine to own—
just mine to mine. 

A wonder!

A ponder, fonder than my own,

my words have their own voices.
