“The Foggy Dew”

“Seeing Through Me” ©️ C.P. Hickey 2021

“The Foggy Dew”

Bathroom baseboard

Soiled towel heap

Foggy mirrors present disposable mysteries

Pine aromas

Shaving kit bursts

Steam becomes wet sheaths on porcelain

Cut whiskers stick

Nostril hairs trimmed

Unseemly hairs arrive as inconvenient truths

Toweling off

Deodorant rolls

Toothpaste tube squeezed in the middle by a feminine grip

Dress shirt buttoned

Tie over around under and up

A reflection captured in time

Who am I looking at?

Who was I looking at?

Who will I see?

A foggy mirror presents disposable mysteries

There are many projects on tap at the end of this year, so please stay tuned. The month of November promises to be rich with poetry, and we’ll be looking into creating another Advent Calendar of blog posts for 2021. We’ll see a different story, memory, picture, etc. behind a series of mysterious and decorated doors.
