Valediction: Looking Glass I

Finally, the mirror has grown too large
for the wall on which it hangs,
for the room which holds the wall.
and the house which holds the girl.
I burn my letters in the hearth,
dear & dear & with love & until.

All I can see ahead is a long road
with no turning.

I cannot help but step through.
