When you see

When you see yourself with your eyes
rather than your mind,
with its manifold preconceptions,
you become unrecognizable.

You are no longer a face,
but rather a nose and lips
and cheeks.

But even these are preconceptions,
and you’re just lines
and colors
and shadows.

Beyond that still, you are
indecipherable,
a mystery
known only to the stars.
