House of Mirrors

“It’s better to hold a candle than to be trapped in a mirror.”

 

Close the doors quietly
to rooms you will not be invited
to reenter.

Relinquish mirrors.

Avoid excessive reflection
lest you rediscover
how much it hurts to fall.

It’s an eternity

you cannot avoid
no matter how
experienced you become
at repetition.

 

Reexamine familiar eyes.
Regarding regret.
Replay the violin.
