Have a Look in the Mirror of Your Dreams
|Music: Fugue. From the Quintet in G Minor for violins,
viola, cello, and piano. By Dmitri Shostakovich.
Sequenced by Dmitri Bachovich at Kunst der Fuge.
|Hear me read
the poem as
an MP3 file.
|Have a look in the mirror of your dreams:
All the horrors that you see are real.
Lest you think the world is as it seems,
Let your skin crawl, your frozen blood congeal.
Of fear and fantasy now take your fill.
Wells of sorrow lie beneath your feet.
Each sun-drenched field you mercilessly till
Endures to see your ultimate defeat.
Now let yourself let go your last conceit.
