Industrial Arts

artist, author and designer for the stage…

Stress abounds in my life right now… but here is my contribution to the Poetry Pot Luck:

I choose the theme of wonder from the list…

Return to this Mirror

I stand again and face myself
always I return to this mirror
to look at myself and to see if I see any scars
I am beginning to feel like Dorian
having gone to rummaging through attics and locked rooms
for the portrait that must truly be me
I have yet to see
life is cruel and won’t let me be
never to find it
never the truth to my answers will I heed
