When I Look in the Mirror, I See So Much

a third grader wearing overalls every Wednesday/ a balding young boy/
a category five storm/ an unusual conspiracy theory without a 
Wikipedia page/ too many dreams/ my grandmother’s 
plate collection/ a pearl ring/ tomorrow/ a filled notebook/ 
unreadable handwriting/ a pot of overcooked pasta/ my mother’s tongue/ 
a black and white tv set/ a dusty pressed flower/ yesterdays to do list/ 
too many hands/
