The Reflective Eye: FLARE 12

The Reflective Eye
by Orla Grant-Donoghue
(after the sculpture by Emer O Boyle at University College Dublin)

Can I hide in this place
where reality is multiplied,
amplified
between beams of light
magnified,
where mirrored retinas
reflect inner lives,
where jet streams carry truth
in the half light,
where moonbeams and sunlight
can find me
with
or
without
my sight?
