The Mirror

More than a Reflection
The Mirror allows us to gaze upon
Our own Outlines
Our Shells
Our Masks
Our Cloaks
Our Framework

Do you look at your Outside
In the Mirror
Or do you take the Time
To look into your own Eyes
To what others might see
Inside

Cicada

Susurrus then silence
A crescendoing cacophony accompanies
The rocketing temperature
Of summer’s supreme days and nights

My children complain of the clatter
The scraping song of the hard-shelled insects
Who surrender their sheddings
On the hose outside the House
