On Looking in a Mirror and Then Lying in Bed

He lie in bed
wondering about his head.
Is he this or
something else instead?
Is he the same inside
even though there
are changes to his hide?
Perhaps, he should find
some place to hide.
There used to be hair there
on that head.
Is he this or
something else instead?
He thinks he’s the same,
but he doesn’t look it
in the picture frame.
Relatives and friends
constantly take photos
with their phones.
He would rather be
left alone
to ponder with his
different-looking head,
if he is this or
something else
instead.
His faithful Chocolate Lab
loves sleeping with
his head under the bed;
the man thinks, perhaps
I should join the
dog and put my
head under the bed
while I wonder
if I am this of
something else
instead.
He climbed down
and joined the
dog head to head
and the dog’s
tail wagged
as if the dog
said,
“Whoever you are,
I’ll always love you
and your
hairless head.”
