Speculative Fiction in Poetic Form. For the March Challenge: D. Wallace Peach/Myths of the Mirror

The frequent whip of that smooth alley
Admitting to the cobwebs of sand foaming
Beneath my feet like the wildness
In the bubbles that she skimmed
From the boiling pot of my lungs
Until I could only breathe her
Breathe her
Breathe her
The machine then cast me from my
Garden of fully-grown dreams into the screaming
Moment just before puberty
Committing me to limp across
That same bridge toward the sun-moon
The same sun-moon
Always that sun-moon
With its damaged rings
But it doesn’t matter
I am blind to its horrid beauty
Because of its beautiful horrors
Madly I drive my feet forward
Sniffing the air
Always sniffing
Every second expecting
The Zookeepers to find me
They never find me
β€œThrow back your head and howl!”
