“A mirror has no power to show a monster unless that monster stands before it.” – Susan Kay, Phantom
You and I, concave facing
tinfoil underneath glass
the old method of preserving reflection
where no amount of mercury can be hidden.
we open our hearts and show them to the glass
the aluminum no longer present
where no amount of mercury is needed.
show me the image:
the laborious fool who lingers
the numb priestess who simpers
the sinister sorcerer who loiters
