untitled (i have a bad habit...)

I have a bad habit
many, in fact

of crossing the street without looking
dodging cars and buses
and other moving objects
daring them to hit me

of crossing my heart without thinking
dodging fists and feet
and other moving objects
daring him to hit me

my eyes turn inward
I am reflected
reflected
upon the mirror
reflecting upon myself
as I am learning
to appreciate the unevenness
of a blue lip
and the adventure of a car
