Be Careful! Mirror Loose Head Comes Off



“In chaos, there is fertility.”
― Anaïs Nin


The lady

seems calm

and content

relishing the scent

of her rose bouquet

perhaps she does not know

that the mirror in front of which she sits so serenely

is loose

and were she to turn around

to glance into it

her head might come off

neither does she appear bothered

by the fashionably unfashionable news

which has caused chaos amongst the breasted

that cleavage is no longer in

maybe she realises that

it is not a moratorium on bosom

it is simply another trend


this too shall pass

as all other ephemeral attempts

to dictate this or that

have done

could it be that she does indeed know

that looking in a mirror

causes heads to come off

and that is why she looks


into the mirror

but at the roses

connected to her nature

rather than cleaved from it.


“We are like sculptors, constantly carving out of others the image we long for, need, love or desire, often against reality, against their benefit, and always, in the end, a disappointment, because it does not fit them.”
― Anaïs Nin
