Prayer to a Mirror

Reflected curtains

lamps and walls, 

books and candles, 


Reflected tea towels 

and footstools


of course,



Just once,


with my own eyes,

may I look in this mirror 

and not see who’s looking.


May my arms 

be those of chairs, 

and my legs 

of tables,

my face 

this vase of flowers.


May this mirror be a window 

filled with 

endless green trees 

and blue sky


As far as no eyes can see.
