Mirrors Exorcising Demons

(Meditations On Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue)

I.

(who)

Is poet

(combs)

Through blind thickets

Of thought

(re)

Leasing God

From these

Old mirrors

(mind)

& eyes

& tongue

II.

(and)

The swords

Of rain drip

(in)

To thirsty

Mirrored pools

(whispers)

Like the breath

Of dying men

In chains

(until)

Our poem ends

In the sound

(pleasure)

Tasting pain

(realms)

Beyond dreams
