Mannequin in a Mirror / Matt E. & George J. Dance

     
Mannequin in a Mirror

Pushing a shopping cart
with everything in
the world in there,
a reflection
in the sidewalk 'mirror'
discloses the truth
about an imposter tatterdemalion
in unwashed
skin crawling
out a mannequin
staring into a place where
toothless smiles make a day and
empty food wrappers get carried away
by a wind that can't spare
change.
