Poetry with a Middle-Age Double Mirror Maudlin Mix

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
