Mirror in the Bathroom

it's not the best form for everything, but I do think it has a certain elegance to it.  backwards-forwards.

Mirror in the Bathroom

Occupied flourescence
Surrounding familiar
Marred mirrors
Reflections questioned,
"Who are you?"
Refracted silence
No answers, no
Silence refracted
You are who?
Questioned reflections
Mirrors marred
Familiar surrounding
Flourescence occupied

At first I thought it was going to be a palindrome, but then I started reading it. I like it. Mirrors and echoing things are neat.

"madam" is a letter palindrome. "dog eat dog" is a word palindrome. this poem is a pure form of the latter. i have some others like it too over the last six months.

thank you for reading and the comment! it's nice to be reminded someone is reading these once in a while.
