99 bottles of beer

by Genevieve Sturrock

there is a mirror
in every bathroom
in every house
in every store

in every bar

go take a look
and tell me

can you meet
your own eyes

cause mine slide
right off your face


Author's Note: i am so very disappointed....

So far everything you write is gripping, how am I going to get anywork done? Now I have to write about my addiction to your poetry!

Wow - how much more upsetting is disappointment than anger or hatred? And you've captured that so perfectly. This made my heart sink...

Alcoholic boyfriend? Thought provoking whichever way the mirror cracks.

The best thing about good poetry is that it conveys the exact emotion it was supposed to, becoming an experience.
