"Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country." -J.F.K.

A faded mirror

Hangs tilted to one side

Of my bedroom wall.

At nights, I stare into it

And my face stares back

Until my eyes close

And my mind drifts into slumber.

Sometimes, when I stare,

It is a woman's face

Old and gray

Like a wadded ball of dust

Left in the corner

Of an abandoned room.

Sometimes she speaks to me.

Tells me to do something

That I would rather not do.

Somethings she asks me to sleep.

But on rare occassions,

Such as tonight,

She just stares.
