Hall Mirror

Gail Mazur

About This Poem


"I'm not usually conscious of glancing in the mirror daily on my way out the door, still sometimes I'm stopped by what I see there. The old mirror, reflecting its histories of aspiration, immigration, injustice—my family were Rosenbergs, too—and ecstasy, 'arrested' me one cold morning—and triggered 'Hall Mirror.'"
—Gail Mazur
