Have you ever

Stood in front
Of a mirror,
And when you
Walk away
The reflection
Remains?

Have you ever
Walked across
To a mirror
To find that
Your reflection
Is already there
Waiting for you,
But it is
Back-to-front
And looking the other way?

Have you ever
Returned
To a mirror
To see if
Your reflection
Is still there,
And you find
That it is,
But the mirror
Itself
Has gone?

Do you
Sometimes feel
That you are not
Looking in the mirror
At all,
But rather
The mirror
Is looking in you?

But how
Are we to discover
What the mirror sees?

And how do we know
Whether the mirror finds
What it is looking for?
