Wheeler Light: Here is How to Love

Here is How to Love

By reading a mirror into a mirror.
A poem into your stomach silent
as December. Only the air vent
can listen to the soft exhale
of your everything. The air vent
which is trustworthy by merit
of it also exhausting.
At that moment the bathroom
filling with hot air. The window
with your silhouette. You can look
in a window and see a mirror.
You can look in a window and see
outside yourself. Where you also are. 


Wheeler Light currently lives in Boulder, CO His poetry has appeared or is forthcoming in Hobart Pulp, The Meadow, POSTblank, and Bottlecap Press, among others.
