Robert Shmigelsky

Robert lives in British Columbia, where he works as a nursing aide and is taking courses in English. His hobbies include computers, history and writing fantasy.

“Mirror Dance, Trickster’s Jinx” is a moralistic poem written in an informal, almost conversational tone. The gist seems to be that the trickster imp may stack the cards against success for even the most assiduous warrior, wizard, archer or whomever. But in the end, destiny may yet prevail. In any event, the poem’s first-line title has to be one of the most intriguing ever composed.
