Really, Understand My face

I had a face transplant
'cos I was off my face, as was.
I trolled the book of faces
till I found one I liked.
We did a face swap, swabbed - 
me and my friend that was.
Now I am her, she is me,
selfies facing up.
We kept our friends and likes.

Now I know how the Herons got that strange look in their eyes...from you. I love the twist and wonder if you kept the same clothes as well. It might do for another visit to the mirror. Keep 'em coming.
