Smiling for his vanity,
Making mouths before the mirror.

Artist Trading Card by the Author, 2012

So handsome, aren’t you darling?
Devastating, aren’t you dear?
Brazening his conscience,
Blinking back his tear.
He knows his eyes still hold me.
His eyes need never fear.
Dancing with his ego,
Making mouths before the mirror.
He must know I’m still captive,
Although why is never clear.

(1984)
