The Journey to the West

The Cracked Mirror of Love

for John Maxwell Taylor

Deep inside the sleeping man
There’s a dormant woman waiting
For the love of the dormant man
Astir in the woman sleeping
On the other side of the bed

Deep inside the sleeping woman
There’s a dormant man yearning
To love the dormant woman
Astir inside the sleeping man
Who lies just across the bed

Through the cracked mirror of love
The imago rears its loving body
Informed and emboldened it embraces
The body without body that resides
Only inside the true lover’s head
