Not My Reflection
by Tal Leonan


When I gaze into the mirror
Who is it that I see?
Surely, that is not my own reflection
Looking back at me
My build is not so bulky
My ears so round or small
And eyes so dark and somber
Could not belong to me at all

Where are my chiseled features
My grace, finesse, my speed
Pray tell, who is this stranger
Looking back at me
