Pantoum by Sara Zink

Mirror, Mirror by Sara Zink

The widowed King takes a bodacious wife
she’s called the fairest of them all
a beautiful Queen with a looking glass
she corrupts his soul and destroys his family

she’s called the fairest of them all
the talking mirror speaks the truth
she corrupts his soul and destroys his family
a tantalizing siren obsessed with her image

the talking mirror speaks the truth
yet, her beauty is surpassed by her stepdaughter
she corrupts his soul and destroys his family
the jealous vamp is a villainous puppet master

yet, her beauty is surpassed by her stepdaughter
this blood spattered bride seeks revenge
the jealous vamp is a villainous puppet master
left for dead is her chaste adversary

this blood spattered bride seeks revenge
sacks her rival and regains her rank
left for dead is her chaste adversary
the Queen mirrors “fairest of them all.”
