Mirror Work

When someone punches you,

the face swells

When someone screams at you,

 the face swells

after she/(y)/ou spills her/self/you

of water, moisture, life   

through the eyes, nose, lips

The face swells.


Scared before her/ y’own reflection.


The mirror bends

The bounds beyond

the flat surfaces of the visual dimension.

There is no audio
