Rainbows and Moonbeams by Mitchel Montagna

A thousand
mirrors, always brown
eyes: dull, disturbing,
constant,
pitiless.

Something inside you breathing
wrong, you think
you’re a hero they
care for.
Dashing into a sunset
of burning rainbows.

You say goodbye to
window panes
polished metals
clear rain puddles.
All of you have
the same brown eyes, your
faces change like
moonbeams.
