framed I hang upon the wall

a little portrait of myselfmy archie selfie

reflecting malice back at me


am I refracted or distorted

chipped, stained or cracked

an aged prism alight from the outside


all those rainbows hidden behind my eyes

wise thoughts crazy beyond their years

staring off into infinity


framed I hang upon this wall

pleased in the glow of vanity

she drew my hair so beautifully
