SAD HIS MIRROR IS BARE

Sad his mirror is bare of echoic images . . . . 


Hence he cannot or will not perceive within

The delinquencies he espies easily in others

The malfeasance he contemplates in them

As his own heartbeat pounding deep within

Whispering not to other men but to himself

The inadequacies he realizes of his own psyche . . . .

 

No picture drawn instructing him of this;

No talisman left even as a hint of it.

don`t we all look in that

don`t we all look in that mirror
