Glass

I throw a chair through the mirror

fed up of staring at me

but behind that mirror is another

refracting for infinity

I stare into the blackened eyes

of who I’d hate to be

and realise he’s always been reflected

in every version of me

I am a human being

I am also fallible

So I smash another mirror

cos being human is unacceptable

I smash through a thousand mirrors

I smash through a thousand more

I smash through myself instead

and shards of me lay on the floor
