Guest Barista Michael Erickson- Mirror, Mirror

Look me in the eye,

Yes, you’re own eyes.

Consider your face,

With its flaws and blemishes.

Hold up those hands,

Each one a mechanism of change.

Look beyond the mortality,

What do you see?

An empty space?

A closed door?

I see a filled room,

An open passageway.

A brilliant soul.
