this mirror so deserving of anger

November 13, 2012 § 4 Comments

This is the third poem of an experiment where a phrase comes to mind and I use that as the title and possibly also the first line of the poem. I use only the letters in the title to write the rest of it, thinking that in a way the poem itself lives within the title. I’m sure there is a fancy-shmancy poetical term for this, but I have no idea what that might be:

this mirror so deserving of anger

this mirror so
deserving of anger
has in its heart
a vision of Hades
so stand
in its fire
and rage on –
a mad
servant
to its dire sting
