smoke and mirrors
objects may be closer than they appear
and only here can they become
exactly what we want them to be
take shapes of what we want to see
don’t lose sight
of where you’re going
while watching where you’ve been

keep the angles tight
and the lights low
watch your image glow
watch it transform
reborn out of the shadows

new and malleable

ready for so much more
strong and unbreakable
your likeness represented
your fear undetected

this is your future self
the other side of what the mirror reflects
