How to Forget Your Reflection

Look in the mirror
remind yourself you're repulsive
Look at the floor
avoid eye contact
to forget.

Try to stop the mind whirring
at a stranger's whisper
Don't guess what they're saying
concentrate on your feet
count the cracks in the pavement
Forgotten for the time being.

A glimpse of a reflection
in the window
Another reminder
count the cracks again
try to forget.
