Stranger in the Mirror

I look at the stranger in the mirror.

Where have I seen him before?

The face is only slightly familiar to me.

I would not recognize this face,

If I saw it coming toward me.

I have not seen THIS face before.

This face that has only eyebrow hair,

Is a stranger to me.

He stares at me from my mirror

Wondering who is looking at him.

Who do I see in that face?

My parents play peek-a-boo

In that elder’s face

That mirrors back to me.

You look good, Mushroom. I wouldn't have recognized you, either!
