Future

The mirror tells me time has run amok. This wrinkled and gray-haired person canโ€™t be me.

My spirit revolts, but has no words. It plays its game nevertheless.

Birth certificates are dated in the future.

  1. Well done reality, Reena.
    Sometimes the mirror is shocking.
    The first verse of Dream On (Aerosmith):
    “Every time that I look in the mirror
    All these lines on my face getting clearer
    The past is gone
    Oh, it went by like dusk to dawn
    Isn’t that the way?”
