you have a gift
it speaks to me
as you become quiet
I have knowledge
when you listen
I have peace
anytime you want it
what’s that, bullshit, you say
that feeling that washes over your body
goosebumps, hairs on end
the upturned corners of your mouth
that comes from nowhere
looking in the mirror, able to stay
more than a glance, for awhile
and you smile
at that moment, you are beautiful
at that moment, you are healthy
at that moment, you are smart
at that moment, you are free
you are
me
the reflection is in my eyes
embrace me
