Short #17: Meshes of the Afternoon

July 3, 2011

1943, USA, Maya Deren

It must be done with mirrors
my head that rests on nothing in mid-air.

Where is my body
where oh where?

I can see the stones
hidden in the hands.

O bring back my body to me, to me,
O miracle bring it back
before the mirrors break.
