How to Write a Poem Imagining yourself as a Mirror - Markings 130

Mirror, Mirror . . .

You are a mirror, on a wall somewhere perhaps, or on a wardrobe door.

Imagine the many events and circumstances which are recorded in you over the course of time — a day, a year, several generations possibly.

Write down these events which you, the mirror, reflect faithfully, and organise all the details into a poem spoken through the voice of the mirror.
