Judas in the Mirror

I am Judas in the mirror

and Jesus in my bed

and a pair of eyes that see you

twitch

or

I am the hunter in the pool

and I am the nymph watching him

and I am the knots of their tendons

when they combine

or

in this I am Orpheus and Eurydice

and the other me begs me not to turn

so I bide the time asking questions

I already know the answer to

like

do you hate me

when I look like this?

will I ever tell you

why?

would you still

love me

if you

knew?
