I Can’t Find Myself

I’m lost.

i looked –

in oozing puddles

in stinking mud

in small rippling waves

in mosquito-infested footprints

in tangerine sunsets

and then –

i found myself in pictures

that made me sob

and break

and stop breathing

and wish for sackcloth

and ashes

to smear on my face

and proclaim my sorrow –

i can’t find myself.

I’m lost.
