A Mirror - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

a mirror
this body
a mirror
this body
for the sun
to speak
to the moon
that she
is beauty
for the moon
to say
to the stars
they represent
her hopes,
as the sky
casting light
on her dreams
a mirror
this body
for the gods
in the
various realms
to cross over
to each other
the heart,
the limbs,
to achieve
so that
they could look
at themselves
in a thousand ways
