Flash Bang Change


You can stare into a glossy surface,

water stained but,

you can see what you strive to see

 a reflective pool

rippled with a flash 

the corners of my lips lift 

with yours.

An eerie imitation 

similar, so similar

but small variations 


differences reveal me as not a mirror 

I am I strange copy, 

a mutated clone 

with each flash,


I change.
