Fun-House, a poem


Art is life, glimpsed in a fun-house mirror,
twisted, stretched. Yet we say, That’s me!
Who could guess I looked so funny? Laugh
and move on. Each image warps its way

into truth. See how long my nose
is! Tomorrow our reflections peer
from the mirrors of the morning, asking,
Do you know me now a little better?
