AA-2: Mirror Writing
Write a poem about arriving in the Looking Glass World and what you experience there on your first day. (<40 lines)

Mirror, Mirror.

The glass called me,
and I stepped through
certain I was ready.

Ready. Steady.

and we melded together
and apart again
I was glass; she was real.

Real. Unreal.

This mirrored room was almost
mine, the view from this window
familiar. strange.

I clung to the edges--
unwilling to take a step
beyond the known.

Known. Shown.

I searched for movement
from my eye's corners,
pondered strange odors,

strange colors, curious
attractions to everything
listened for echoes.

Echoes. Echoes.

A whisper lingered
in my mirrored head,
even stillness is a choice.

Choose. Choose.

I stepped. And the mirror
changed, slipping me
into a new story.

Story. Glory.
