Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem uses a double mirror image, as you might experience in a vehicle or barber/hairdresser’s, as a metaphor tool for contemplating life in middle-age.
Through the Looking Glass Reflect Future and Past
reflecting front view mirror
I can see behind
and me looking ahead
as memory is used to review
yourself previewing one’s future
I sit in the middle, neither here nor there
contemplating half life past
like reflection can show the way
my back is visible
before what is ahead
through rear looking glass
