Something
you saw or read that day-
Maybe ate-
Your perception changes
from day to day
as your cells slough
and take on the shape of your skin
once again-
So your brains cells will
collide and then lie down and die
ready for the shape
of a new face,
the place of a new brain-
that may recognize
in a place
where was light
where was beauty
now lies only
vines shadowboxing
an illusory image
of space
