To Me or Not To Me
               
by Joey York

Where’s the me that used to be
  and who’s the me that is?
Is the who is me determined
   by the view of me as seen from
     the outside in?
Is the me I see a singularity
   or a compilation of all the me’s who’ve been?
Which me is looking at the other me’s
   and are my lenses clear —
   or are the eyes of me clouded
     by the I’s of me
   and focused by pleasure and fear?

  circa 1994
