What would I take
if I was on an island alone?
Would I take a life boat that would help me float back to my home?
A concreate jungle filled with apes and jaguars
racing to the top of the Empire to dethrone our king.
Or would I bring a life time supply of food and water?
Books that would be food for thought
and music that would quench my undeniable thirst for rythm.
Or will I simply bring a mirror?
A reflection of myself that may have been lost in the jungle.
A sense of morality, a sense of compassion, a sense of self.
What if I am already alone on an island called Manhattan
and a mirror was all I needed to bring myself home?
All I need is a mirror.
