Reflective glass,
Revealing the outside.

Imitating movements,
staring straight into jigsaw puzzled eyes.

That person in the glass:
same eyes
same hair
same face
same body

A fragile object framing
a mime
A measuring tool of society

Each day
Afraid of the creatures
with the piercing eyes
that glow red at night

Dressing flesh in clown paint
and faerie dust
layers and layers.
A cloak
covering whats underneath
to hide from soul seekers

Taking off the mask
Unzipping the suit.
At the end of the day
washing off the clown paint
a piece of you eroding with it.

Swirling down the drain.

The person in the glass
cannot peel the layers off
But
Encourage to keep adding

Inside the glass
Is no one
