Snow White's stepmother muses in her mirror....


my looking glass, its edges a tangle of serpentine tresses
a frame carved in deep sanguine sleep
a breath in
a breath out
frosts my likeness
a reflection of dark lashes and lips,
fingertips and speckled brown iris
evening wishes Its images cast behind me:
of Night carrying stars,
Her baskets high above hills
the wind at Her back
delicately transporting clouds upon her apron
reflected moments ripple and whirl
what if I shatter? in shards?
and each fragment spun out across distances of forest
and dream:
and each is myopic, illusion-inducing
and stabs its way into every heart
and laid bare
all our delusions?
who, then, to heal us?
