Remembered from magazines

Now I live
other people's lives
in other people's houses,
padding barefoot through
strange familiar rooms
recognizing on the walls
paintings and photographs
from prints in textbooks
that I once read
leafing through novels
that I'd been meaning to buy
cooking with spices
that I have seen mentioned
in televison travelogues
glimpsing faces
remembered from magazines
in the mirror
and wondering who
they're turning into.

Tres nice...but you forgot the Saturday morning bagpipe serenade.

Oh, no I didn't, Nonny... that would be impossible. It penetrates everything around me. I felt a need to keep it out of this serene little piece of virtuality.

Haunting and lovely.
