i’m ashamed
how attached
i am to my image –

how slowly i pass 
by windows and mirrors,
post all those posed moments 
online, engage in constant self-
evaluation: how’s the jawline?

i can see stark focus is no longer
my ally. i’ve become better off
touched up like an aging celebrity:

and let's face it,
my only diehard fan is me.

Were we always obsessed with self-image, I wonder. I think so... it's more accentuated now with selfie-culture and accessibility ... that damned smartphone device has made artists and journalists of all!
