I was awaken by fluttering voices

Unreliable eyes discover curious creatures

Turquoise translucent specters

Displaying mischievous smiles

Neither greeting nor evicting me

We both stood our ridiculous ground

Ground was not ground at all

Gelatinous magenta waves supported altered feet

Altered feet, skin, eyes and ears – this isn’t me!

Who are you, I scream at conspiring mirror!

Close your mental eyes, I said.

Awake, I mourn the death of nocturnal oddities
