All Done By Mirrors - Poem by Brian Taylor

One man’s yesterday

is another man’s magic theatre.

He creates the past

he thinks he had

which shows that things weren’t so bad

(or even a little better) .

He stretches and bends time and space

and smooths the contours of each face,

the beautiful and the ugly,

to make or mould or find

a glove which fits more snugly

the deformed fist in his mind.

    Presence cannot attach and grasp - only the ego or person created in the past and continued because presence is not seen. Thank you for the mirror. (Report) Reply
