Mirror Image

Cast iron gaze, little rust emergence,
wave patterned skin, tidal years relentless.

Rings of presence, visible when stories are cut.
Blistered brain, burned, brimming over with conditions,ignited rocket on a crash collision
with the heart’s motive.
Rubble wreckage pulling down heavy sockets,
green sparkle ever young though,
smooth glass glinting amid beach pebbles.
Rebel joker making light.
Symmetrical opposite in an unreachable land.
I touch the surface,

the illusory doppelganger
a loyal unflinching companion.
