3334 Self Portrait [2]
[by S. David][art by Madeline von Foerster]

Unmoving, staring off
Into space, where is she?
Doves stand before her,
She does not see.
A butterfly flitters
About her head, she
Does not see. Where
Is she, into what
Realm has her mind
Slipped away? And she
Is not happy with
Herself. Dreamily,
She stands behind
Herself, boring a hole
Into her own head.
Put or take,
In or out,
A pale ghost of
Herself seeks change
In herself,
Seeks a new becoming.
Always a becoming,
But into what?
