"On the other side of a mirror..."

On the other side of a mirror there’s an inverse world, where the insane go sane; where bones climb out of the earth and recede to the first slime of love.

And in the evening the sun is just rising.

From "Antimatter" by Russell Edson. The complete poem is at Poetry Foundation. You can hear Edson read it on Youtube.
