Not What You Think

In the echo
Of a downtown mirror
Caught a glimpse
Of someone
I should recognize
I should know better
But the guy wearing
A familiar ball cap
Was chatting up strangers
Laughing at joke’s
Half-hearted attempt
Sharing the easy
Obvious wisdom
At his disposal

Charmed himself
And a marveled crowd
Into the momentary belief
Of something more
Than the sleight of one hand
While the other
Fingered a pocket
And wondered
About the possibility
Of two radically different
Carnival house reflections
Casting the same shadow
