HOUR NINETEEN ~ Cities of Light and Shadow


Or, Finding the MirrorMask

~inspired by the movie MirrorMask, written by Neil Gaiman


it’s a dream but it’s not a dream

because really it’s another world


this is a city of front and back

a city of light and shadow

a city created by dreams,

and drawings, and wishes


hopes and fish swim along the streets

sphinx cats will chew the pages of books

it’s always dim here, twilight, like in a dream

that’s part of how you can tell, unless

you are the type of artist who can easily recognize

your own work made life-size and living


so find the key and then

the lock and then the mirrormask

the last door left will take you home again
