If you see something
that doesn’t look right
something that keeps you
awake at night
could be the face
of someone
who said hello
as if they know
you but you’re not sure
if they do or not
and if you did
you forgot
did they always have a beard
that hat
heavier and taller, perhaps
less certain about things
a laugh in an alleyway
a scrape of shoes
in the street at night
an unexpected headline
in a paper
you hate
the way you look at yourself
full frontal
in a quarter length mirror
the moon
frantic as a moth
at the bathroom window
well, then
text the british transfiguration police
see it
say it
sort of
