A strange thing happened to me today,

when I least expected it,

it was scarcely poetic,

or thought provoking,

This strange thing just happened;

I was brushing my teeth

and looking at myself in the mirror,

as one does,

and for the briefest moment,

this flash took place

and I was inside the mirror

looking out at myself,

seeing myself in silly pajamas

and toothpaste mouth,

my hair in total disarray,

it was just a moment,

like time had tweaked itself

but then I was back inside

my own body,

thinking to myself

how silly.  No one would ever believe you.

Best to just forget it.

I think I will throw away the silly pajamas.
