Or Equal To


I stand

and look

in the mirror

and I say to myself

“I’m better than you”.

I step back

still looking

in the mirror

and I hear myself


“you’re no better than me”.

I turn around

I walk away

I close my eyes

and think to myself

“I wish I was somewhere else”

“I wish I was somebody else”

yet here I am standing still

a better me,

no better than you.
