(Art poem) She Made A Beautiful Video For Your Tube by Kushal Poddar

OI made an Ugly YouTube Video (1)ne thirteen years old asks: Am I ugly? 

Since I have no say, no minutiae,

I like her post. Hundreds like her post.


Imagine her standing between two mirrors,

light striking back and forth, thinning her

beyond frame, perception, silhouette.


Am I ugly? Asks a cloud freshly kneaded

from a flood. Am I ugly? Asks a bird.

I can see a rat’s tail hanging from its mouth.


The left mirror does not exist. It is

a shadow of the one on the right. 

The right mirror is a mirage. It casts

the light left over from the beauty’s erring side.
