Shattered Specular Reflection.

Imagine a mirror
Look into it and
Try to see yourself.

It isn’t quite you , is it?

An approximation
Of what you believe yourself to be.

Take a second mirror
To reverse the first’s reversal.

Is it more or less like you?
Do two lies make a truth?
Does twice removed
Make things nearer?

Break the mirror
And reassemble
Your reflection.

There that’s better
Now do you recognise

Your true self?
