Poems and Poetry

Image | A Poem by Aroop Mitra

Standing before
the full length
mirror
I am taken aback
raising my left arm

my palms face you
imitating those saints
in byzantine icons

the image raises
its right palm

not i
(but i-image)

darkness swamps
images

converges under
water
cover

my right it’s left
my crooked he’s
a crook
