Poem of the Week | Would I shatter by Ruth Ennis

I don’t think 

I’ve ever seen 

A mirror in 

My dreams


The worlds 

I build are

Too flat 

To reflect 


My own 


I don’t think 

I’ve ever seen 

People’s faces

In my dreams

Maybe a point 

Of a nose 

Or a curve 

Of a cheek 

But no blinking 


No peeling skin

On smirking lips


In my dreams

My face is also

A blank canvas 

That I don’t know 

How to fill in
