The mirror
By Zac Dunn

Published Issue 111, March 2023

This perilous path 

Touching eager tender steps 

Downward to the unimaginable 

Place of bliss and oblivion 

How many pieces must we cast 

To build the mountain 

Tall enough to fill the expanse 

So hungry to feed its own purpose

What flavor or fragrance 

What cuvée or crü

What cask or coastal breeze 

What hands so humble to pluck 

Mighty silent monoliths 

Casting their judgment and glare 

As we gaze back 

Seeing only ourselves in the liquid 

Noble rot exalted 

To light in extension 

Color ways 

Less incandescently employed
