Mistaken Identity - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Mistaking me
for myself

I apologised
...stammering:

'I'm sorry...
I thought yo
were

someone
I
knew.

    Funny quirky little thing...that tickles the sensibilites and then leaves as sharpish as it came. nice little game of a poem if I am not mistaken...but then I'm no more me than you are you too...but a series of becomings that always make a new me just in time'to present a face to meet the faces that I meet' and is then abandoned for the next new me etc., etc. etc.
