The Third Person is the First

The Third Person is the First

A Poem by Brett Campaigne

mirror teacher

teaches me to see from angles previously

                       unseen

mirror preacher

is your eyes from God itself

preacher and teacher

you mentor my gravitational axis

teach me satelite carpentry

preach to me the commandment of body

                                all ways of measuring

                                power geometry

                                hiermalarchy

       voluptuous gorgeous avarice covetous

      shame spectrum cements its system

      lack lack lack lacking

       addition and subsatistraction

a more vigilant surveyor than the state

skyscrapers with mirror windows

the cameras obsolete.

Crafting a new image while scrutinizing the old. Much allegorical references.

if we all learn to look into mirror perhaps world will become a better place...again you analogies can be conjured only by you...lovely.
i struggled with subsatistraction...what does it mean?...wonderful.
