"ALTER = Ego"

I hear the washing
the machine—sloshing
I see the Windex sitting on the sill
I see the crumbs
gritting the table
the dog is chewing my will
I don’t flinch
Not a no
Nor a peep
I wanted something new—
the way to an end
to my desire

naughty!

I come to

Oh, she’s back,
it's my alter
ego
doing as
the real me is screwing
off at the computer again
staring at the

scream...as
the dirt piles up
the dust layers in

I draw two I’s
a smiley face

in the coffee
table:
negative of features

mocking me:
a shallow grin

Stupid
dirt
Stupid
dust

Why won't the dog give up?

We startle as
right by the window
a robin flies
once past, She circles
and has now crashed into
How did She not see it?
She just flew past
Silly robin, silly bird
You were not fittest
So—a miscalculation

no doubt
in constant vane
blood and brain

matter

I must clean now
picking tiny fuzzy feathers
off the grimy double pane
on the outside looking in

it's clean enough
it certainly seems so

Afternoon
Ahhh-Nap is near
I may dream
of a day dream
in which they all come true

alter = ego
tertiary = incendiary
pills = depression
I fly into a window
A mirrored glass
Is a look-in
glass
Reproduction
does not = option

And We get the impression
that the miscalculation
was after all,
by design.
