MIRROR

this old man
in my mirror
shaving
when i shave,
brushing his teeth
when i brush mine
contorting his features
just to annoy me
and making a general nuisance
of himself

and i know
that geezer is thinking
what i'm thinking
and sure enough
he mouths the words
even as i speak 'em,
saying,
"good lord!
when the fuck
did that happen?"
