Book of faces

The book of faces tells me

my story is totally empty.

Is it the same for the faces of people

I see silently walking on heavy feet?

How shallow are these souls

never coming up for air

from the inward world

of their hand-held mirror?

Revolving their view to face outward

only to catch a moment,

but never to see a lifetime.
