Comfortable enough

With the mirror’s reflection

I’m comfortable enough, but some days

Some days I can’t simply stand my face

Bored to death of this reflected self

The family nose

Full lips and new lines getting deeper

Getting deeper with passing time

With pictures except when smiling

I’m comfortable enough, but some days

I’m simply fed up with the poised picture face

Bored to death of the camera lens

The family smile

Big teeth and all in a sudden sunken eyes

Sinking day after day with passing time

In general terms I’m comfortable enough

Comfortable enough with the shallow shell I carry around

But on specific terms — I’m not so sure anymore

Not sure anymore of whatever strength is left
