Self Portrait

by Cole Miller

In that
Place between
The .night.sky.
And the .glass.
Is where
I would
Paint myself


Author's Note: when youre out driving with someone, (not you actually driving, thats dangerous) and you look out the window. You can see your reflection. that reflection is what im talking about here...

This is an exquisite piece of reflective writing --literally. I can see the image plastered in the heavens, but realize its only an illusion and want to piant myself there so that I may gain some permanence to the sensation. Exquisite!

Refreshing, I get a cool visual. Next time, I'm getting someone else to drive so I can join you. :)

Yes, I've seen that kind of reflection often. It has an etheral or surreal quality about it. An intriquing concept.

i can not even begin to explain how i love this one so. it's so subtle, but you do so much with the form of the piece- and it's very, very concise. this is what poetry should be. wowza. peace:a
