Excerpts from Mad(e)woman, a book of poetry by A. Leylâ; (mental health, self-image, suggestion of physical harm)
i feared the glass
⠀poised to break itself
⠀against a window / pane
⠀(i break myself through glass / my
⠀self / shatter into simpler colors
⠀(each mirror takes from me a fraction
⠀of myself / somebody thrown back; some / body
⠀⠀⠀the rest in / verse)
⠀⠀only what if i exist
⠀⠀what if only i exist
⠀⠀what if i only exist
what if i exist only
to pull the glass out of
so the mirror bent me back in 2
dimensions / ⠀⠀& the body bends me
back in 3.

given who I am as a person, I'm prone to punning obtusely on the word "object" in general, but I think the OP of this thread may be a new height and/or depth for me
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
