Favorite Quote:
"Are we human? Or are we dancer? My sign is vital, my hands are cold, and I'm on my knees, looking for the answer - you've gotta let me know." - The Killers


Face in the mirror,
You’re getting too old for me
I’d like a new one
To see instead of myself
Him smiling right back at me.


The author's comments:
This piece is in the form of Japanese poetry called "tanka," a form of haiku. I got the idea of tanka from the book "The Pillow Box of Cordelia Kenn," an excellent read.
