figure(a young man)

standing before the mirror

a bath, walls lined with pink tiles

cheeky in their ugly way

He is unrecognizable to himself

 

knows he has changed

skin smooth, eyes distant

his curls are gone(shaved)

tortoise-shell glasses set atop the bridge

alterations, a constant flux

 

Ravel, Bartok, Poulenc

enlivening an idea

a different medium to explore, perhaps

seek the unknown perpetual child

Limitless, you
