Mimic -- Poetry 2011

She played at being someone else.

Seriously studious in her approach,

glimpses of her favorite people

inundated her normal guise….

phrases, gestures, hair style,

clothing melded in random combinations

until she was no longer sure who she was

at any given moment. Lost in mimicry,

the mirror reflected a thinly disguised

algorithm disappearing before her eyes.
