Look…
she sees straight through me,
while I betray the whites of her lies
and interpret her mind for you all;
watch as the scales fall from yours

See
ficklesome fractals colour me brown,
colour me green, then red, as a mist
descends from the blue to
blind her to truth and peace

Observe
as I open up wide in delight
Narcissi revealed in glittery pools
of silvering hue and vanity glass;
a classical arrogant echo

Note:
some say there are three of me
but that’s just their perception
Some pluck me out for Jesus
I’m the magic in 3D
An enigmatic soul encoder;
multilingual sin confessor;
I translate in any tongue
Huami
?
