The mirror


The young boy in the mirror
wrestled with his tie
struggling to pull it over his head
and slide it back into place
already tied
already a tie
already a boy
the mirror
an image of the wrestling match
tie pinning the boy in the
first round
running around the gym
arms raised up in the air
boy, sad
face long and heavy
trying to smile
trying to again
tie
the tie.
