Poetry 101 Rehab: Reflection

shattered mirror,
does not yield a true

splinters of glass
thread my reflection with
cracks glittering in the
(too many cracks,
too little glue)

sometimes the broken mirror
something that doesn’t
look quite

sometimes i look at my
reflection and
“am i real?”

  1. Interesting observations and reflections. I reflect on the concept now of our scattered/shattered society as a distorted mirror in which one sees not oneself, but a number of different “selves”. Very much enjoy your poem. Worthwhile reflections.
