SOLO ECCLIPSE
(1/17/13)


I am me
when
I am alone

in the shadows

in the darkness

include
just one
additional
sentient being
and I become
someone else

a stranger

a mutant

this person
disgusts
me

I seem
to have
no control
over the
transformation

when I
make an effort
to present
my true self
to others
I am soon
solitary
again

this fact
amuses
me

if I only
had an efficacious
answer
for avoiding
people
in the first
place

perhaps
a sign

a tell

a mark

a smell

~

perhaps
I could
fart
my way
to freedom
