Self-portraits

  1. A single fuzzy die hanging from a rearview mirror
    I blink six eyes at people with their hot pink matches
    Or those who only blink three back
  2. A well-insulated house built too quickly
    I am warm in bed
    Knowing that this roof won’t hold up for long
  3. My mother’s eyes in the mirror
    Returning after eyeliner is smudged with the back of my hand
    A face that can’t be scrubbed off
  4. Two different heart-shaped earrings
    Discussing the people who bought them
    Who must be more tangled than they let on
