Mirrors

The stars painted their skins

dipping fingers of silver tears

onto their bodies.

 

They worked with the surface,

painting the inside on the out,

till each one was drenched with wonder

at the transformation.

 

Hair plastered from fake rain

they stared at the mirrors

until they dissolved into transparency,

locked forever behind the glass

they once adored.
