by Ian McBryde

This poem (one of a selection) was read in English by Ian McBryde, and also translated and read in Greek by Jo Panas, at Saloni M goes South, September 26, 2000.

8. Unvisited

I'm locked
inside this mirror.

I hear but cannot see
the traffic,
the swift wind,
the disturbances of birds.

All I see is me frantically
scratching, beating uselessly
against the wrong side
of a glass too thick to give.
