'Recognition' by Sarah McGreevy

I see a face

With glasses

My hair

A man: Roy Tanner

A woman: Jacky Long

Alan with his hat

Jenny

Lyn

Joan

Mary

And Jane’s glasses

I see you in my mirror

Because you are looking at me.


It’s me

In the Arnolfini

I point at you

That’s me

That’s you

Everyone I know

That’s recognition.
