I am Narcissus

I am Narcissus

“God bless my haircut, and my job.”

 

—An egotarian mantra

I keep in choice alabaster,

next to my summer self-portrait—

painted in gold hues—of me.

 

I AM the closet narcissus,

God has blessed me with good visage.

I AM holy, holy, holy,

Blessed be my glorious name.

 

“I AM. For God creates great men.”
