Looking for herself in the mirror

There’s someone in there, gender XX for
certain, long curtain of hair hiding tent

-ative smile. Small spark in green eyes
no surprise but seldom shared, should

-ers squared against a world that once
wounded. Fingers cramped from flow

-ing pen, toes aching for sand, marooned
on dry land waiting for the tide to list

-en to the moon and collect the last lost
pieces of her: tears and tumbled sea glass.
