Something People Say



People say I'm not myself.  I'm you,
if they're to be believed, because the two
of us have never happened to get caught
together in one photograph.  That ought
to make me someone else, I can't say who. 

I wouldn't mind exchanging places, true
enough.  With practice I could take their cue
to make like you, and you'd be me, like what
                            people say. 

That won't suit them. They seek proof in lieu
of certain things their hearts already knew
would always be, until their eyes forgot
to see the obvious not as it's not.
Excuse me, tell me one more time: what do
                            people say?
