“a wildness starts to bang and twist”

This poem uses one of my favourite structures - the use of eight short rhyming lines into which multiple sub-layers of meaning have been sublimated; in this case, amidst a sense of mystery, atmosphere and intensity, allowing a single, emotionally charged image to tell a profound story: that of the protagonist's life and. . . well, I'll leave you to figure out what else!

The Mirror's Madness

Simon Rees

Leaking from the beads of black
which pry his eyeballs open
is fear, an urge to move, while back
within his mind, awoken,
a wildness starts to bang and twist,
for frozen in the glass
are looks which one day might have kissed
this stranger’s violent mask.
