be wilder?
a dull spot on the ear

   or haunting -
who's at the bottom of the stairs

and smarmy make-up
I cannot read the lips

my mirror
   is cracked

So clever, Kelli. I love the play on words.

I had never thought of bewilder as also "be wilder."

I cannot figure how you made the letters upside down/backwards with the last word. You're a word wizard in more ways than one.

That ending made me laugh. I have always been a bewilderedbeast myself.

My power's been out for a day and a half. Talk about imperfections!
