You interpret it.

writings on the mirror reveal their anonymous dreams
dreams of standing up, turning the tea kettle off,

saying yes, taking the stars, and opening the door

tomorrow they vanquish and vanish without telling us
something is curling in pensive, tragic clandestine

listen with your eyelashes and you will see
the secrets that tear and annihilate them
where do their dreams hide?
they hide beneath the glossy cheval glass
pieces smashed and broken, scattered across the floor
and there’s no one there to pick them up.
