take a portrait of a person passed
out of its picture frame
over a white candle burning
you light it on fire
the glass from the frame you blacken
with the portrait alight
back goes the glass
black facing inwards
frame and candle
you set up on a table
start staring into the mirror black
get rid of yourself
and don’t dare blink
when black and glass
do disappear
tell me about the other side
