seeing within

Poem #265 from a series of poems drawn from the imagination and collected as: a Bachelard reverie.

Back to Bachelard and me – Introduction


when he looked
at himself

cast his mind
inward

he could not see
the truth
anymore

the truth
was painted
in the silver
of the mirror

but
what he saw
when he looked inside himself
was only
what he believed
