Luis Cuauhtemoc Berriozabal

I Look all Crazy
Don’t tell me what to do.
I am the voice of reason.
My one blind eye sees all.
The other one sees nothing.
I look all crazy in
the mirror. I am not who
I think I am. I make
funny faces. I open up
the cabinet. I hide
the poison pills there. There is
an invisible ghost
there who basks in silence. I
keep the ghost inside there
all alone and despondent.
