Poem: Avoiding Mirrors

By: E. Martin Pedersen

Gorgeous Pier One Decorative Mirrors Pier 1 Round Shell Mother Of Pearl Mirror In An Entryway For

My daydreams and nightmares have the same plot
with different protagonists or the same
people from my past life passed over on the other shore
people (see above for their real names) showing up on my doorstep
now that I finally have a doorstep
the horror and the joyous pathos

Wither they show up or not they do
in the playhouse up here
torment me as a hint
as to after many many years
I need to step out of the bath of my past self and stories
face the mirror
wipe off the clouds
not be afraid.
