i open the refrigerator door,
and the hallway beside is painted

in blue; not the meticulous brush
of expression, but the brutal

postmodern punch. the light is
split, his lips contorted. he

takes the form of a mirror’s
broken bones: patches and

fractures, splashes of stark.
it warbles and wanes, like

a cat between my legs.
the figure stands close;

i can’t tell if that is a ghost,
or my shadow in the dark.

    i’ve read this like three times and it’s really a beautiful poem. it’s hard to tell what it’d about at first but the idea is really simple. but somehow you made a universe around it and all of the lines are beautiful and rhythmic and they fit in perfectly. i gotta go now cause i’m typing on my ipod and the keyboards too small but seriously no words can describe how much i love this poem. youre truly an artist and never stop writing poetry.

    oh this is wonderful. like a breath of fresh air or a "cat between my legs". "he /takes the form of a mirror’s / broken bones" made me gasp out loud. so melancholy and close yet distant at the same time. i am sad and in awe. thank you for these wonderful words
