' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' 'Not Another! (Being A Birthday Poem For Miss Ruthie)

The 'me'
inside the mirror

smiled
'Happy Birthday! '

The 'me'
outside the mirror

grimaced

'Yeah...yeah...sure sure! '

and walked off
leaving my reflection

with nothing
to say.

    haha spot on that one....As for me, I try to avoid mirrors but my reflection keeps trying to catch my eye and winks at me.
    It says, 'I know you, old thing, is that a polo neck sweater you're wearing or does you neck always look like that? Of course I reply.....'how very dare you! ': o))))))))
