Look into the mirror
and your pupils will dilate
as they let in the same light
under which your scars go
from red to orange
they’ll let in all the compliments
you forgot about
when your eyes were fixed on a single silhouette
they’ll take in all the sleeps where
even your mind was resting with you
they’ll engulf your secret about
how you actually know everything
about the forts in your city
they’ll welcome everything that
makes you precious
and finally contract
into a tiny black dot
like your own currency, full of value
Look away from the mirror.
