So i had a very weird night and woke up and looked in the mirror and had a surreal experience. Made a quick little experimental poem about it and recorded it! A little unpolished but i wanted to capture the mood i was in.
Huh. I look very different today.
I looked in the mirror and was unsure what to say.
My nose looks larger, in an unamusing way.
My pupils look blacker, my face looks more gray.
I think i've damaged my eyes.

Some how, though, i think i have physically changed.
My mind isn't damaged i'm not quite deranged
It's not a trick of the light, making these strange
differences to my face and tonal range
I'm different in shape and size.

My shoulders feel achey as though they've been stretched
My bones feel bitten as though they've been fetched
My insides feel slimey as though eaten then wreched
My hair is all tassles, as though crudely pen sketched
It all comes as a sullen surprise

Even my voice echoes unknown
I hear myself speak as though through a phone
It's higher and thinner, it's lacking in tone
It now always starts with a tremorous groan
Every part of me is under disguise

I recognize not the weight of my hand
It's heavier than i remember and corse like sand
It's fingers extend but i don't understand
They move in a way that seems quite unplanned
Outside i hear the birds cries

The birds sound the same, so my sound perception is fine
I have normal spatial awareness and a good sense of time
But my bodily fails me as i try to walk a straight line
My requests for good balance my body meets with decline
Any thoughts or criticisms would be super!
