A Song is Not a Mirror (Verse)

A song is not a mirror,
it’s a bicycle reflector –
glaring back
the brightest rays.
Sometimes blinding,
other times warning,
welcome at times,
intrusive at others.

It’s a filter, in other words,
with what’s important
predetermined -
what’s in and
what’s left out

engineered with precision.
