Face Seen Through Glass

So often now have I looked down

on all of this, on all of us

and seen my face reflected in the stars

 

To dive inside it ripple-less I’d like

and wander in that underwater sky

look up from there upon this sunken world

 

I’d love to break the rules in one clear swoop

shatter through the glass or break the ice

look downwards through the stars upon my face

 

I’d love to see surprise spring in my eyes

to see my face reflected in the stars

look up from there upon this sunken world

 

From all of this and all of that I’d burst

and wander free from rules and grip of ice

discover how it was before the glass

shattered my reflected face into the stars
