“Mirror Slaked to Mirror”

“Mirror Slaked to Mirror”

We were in this band

no matter how fast you ran

made us feel this beautiful again

and all lights we were here then

just us on a rainy afternoon

just us could listen to rain together

just us: trees open to relax

even the tigers in the closet, at last

to spread a cream made of mirror

to mirrors correct you,

or your vision’s illusion

down the gull of a hollow seagull

and waves crash in the clouds

and pretty when the roses

smell boats under the covers

a mirror is the murderer

to the heir of the thief:

it don’t allow you to break your own bones

not meant to stretch that way.
