Narcissus’ Narcotic

We were driving
through some
scenic areas,
so I handed him
my camera
for him to
capture it.

That night,
looking through
picture
after
picture
he’d taken of himself,
I laughed
and told him
how lame he was.

Looking back,
he had very quietly
given me
a look behind
the mask,
shown me
his true character.

I laughed it off
at the time.
I don’t laugh anymore.
