Six-way Mirror is a prose poem like no other. Borrowing its structure from the ancient Chinese classic the I Ching, it comprises 64 sections, each addressing a universal theme, from The Mirror to The Book, in short vignettes. The scope is panoptic, with hundreds of subjects ranging widely over time and space. In just the first ten sections we encounter: a schoolgirl mermaid; a dysfunctional tanning booth; a Death’s-head Hawkmoth; a Gypsy princess’s wedding; a Rococo teapot; a stray acorn found in a trouser pocket; the Defenestration of Prague; a god of ancient Egypt; arms trading in the desert; and a poltergeist.
