You look familiar,

I said.

Where do I know you from?

We listed things we do,

things we did,

places we go,

people we know.

Nothing in common.

It was weeks later,

I saw you through the crowd,

and realized I’d seen you in my mirror

forty years ago.

    moving from a mundane conversation that we have all had to a surprise ending, seeing your much younger self reflected in a stranger. very cool
