here we are/hall of mirrors

give me some time to reflect
to review and reconsider this
reflection reflected
what it is that i want, what i want to want and want
reflected as what i don't

all he wanted was a hall of mirrors
one million tiny white flowers
to bloom in the spring, round the pools

to ring my halls with narcissus petals
to ring my horns with cedar and garlands
tiny white diamonds within tiny white diamonds

it's the jewel we covet, the polished glass
having found ourselves so far beyond
these golden, flowered frames
