The Ice Polar Bear

by Maia Reedy

There was a girl who was made of bricks
Everything was made of bricks
Except she didn’t know that there was an ice polar bear stuck in her mirror
It howled at night and whispered at day
She heard it whisper in the wind
It was a message
Every day it made clones of itself till it turned to water
One night the wind whipped hard
It made her mirror crack and the polar bear cracked with it
It turned to water
She cried and cried till she turned to dust.
