Face ID

The reflection throws back a version of myself that’s real but see-through

The gray light of day.

The pattern of squares across my window pane.

The sound of a record from another time projecting me backwards

and setting me down here,

in another box,

thumbs beating screens like a wind-up monkey

plays drums to just one song.
