Life in the Rearview Mirror

Thanks to Blake Barlow-Unsplash

Mirror, mirror in the car

How I wonder what you tell

In the traffic, in the day

Secrets told, by no means kept

Looking through monotony

I see you bored and caged

Male gender 

Gap away 

Are your thoughts like mine? 

Do they wander? Do you ponder?

Purpose and eternity

As you weave and barely listen

You ruminate, you muse

How once upon a time 

You thought

She was the one so pretty

Remember once you couldn’t wait

To keep her from harm’s way

When did she embody

Women you despise?

When did she disgust you?

Was it the first

Or the last time?

When did she turn ugly?

Morphing into your harm’s way

Surely you didn’t you know it

The exacting price

For blatant mediocrity

While languishing

You writhe

Did it slowly dissipate

This ardor oh so true?

Was it grief to be alone?

Quite the misdemeanor

Willing to negotiate?

So charming and so cool

With obligation calling

You won’t risk to care

Forever stuck in tragic

Mirror, mirror in the car

How I wonder what you tell

In the traffic, in the day

Secrets told, by no means kept
