Antimatter by Russell Edson (1973)
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.
Lovers cry because they are a day younger, and soon childhood robs
them of their pleasure.
In such a world there is much sadness
which, of course, is joy . . .
