"In the physical body the eye views objects upside down. It sends the image of what it observes to the brain which interprets the image and makes it appear right side-up to us.
But the human body has another physical eye whose function has long been recognized by humanity. It is called the 'Third Eye' which in reality is the Pineal Gland. It is long thought to have mystical powers. Many consider it the Spiritual Third Eye, our Inner Vision."
My 2 takes:
The Other Room
The mirror reflects the other room's door: it shuts out a land of polychromatic paper horses galloping like mad Valkyries.
The other room is a land of holes dripping ice tears into a purple river and planes flying through the ceiling. Savage songs tear mouths.
In the mirror autumn merges with desperate shapes squeezing out the keyhole. All the small dead wear quicksilver.
I rush out: the sun swallows me as if I was the culprit.
There was a great heat that year.
They made tents out of the nation's
worn out mantle, fixed their gaze
at fissures. The heat cracked
the asphalt, burned the blue, filled
the air and lungs, stuck the tent to
their ripped skin that flapped
like a flag.
When the rain came, it was no relief:
large drops splashed on the ground
and dried exhaling dust.
