If I say this has no taste,

do you change the cook?

A mirror seen in my mind’s eye.

How many people look?

If I cringe when you brush past

do you think I’ve felt?

No vapor trail – but there is gas.

Have I even smelled?

My ear rings when in the forest.

Will you come to tune it?

Shake your head in disbelief

not caring that you’ve ruined it.
