A Long Look in the Mirror is a collection of poems, each one of them reflects a piece of the author. A moment in time, a thought, a question. We all have them; this book explores them with raw intimacy.
It is almost midnight and before I turn off my light,
I see my Moleskine resting on the table unassumingly,
but its presence is so loud that I cannot ignore it.
This is my time.
I scratch in my purse for a pen.
Let the poem begin.
