Mirror, Mirror

Mirror, mirror
Don’t look at me
don’t
return my gaze
There is too much truth
in your reflection
I would rather
forget
But if you are willing:
sway without me
in a dance
of grace
Show me the
gestures of compassion
Then I may sneak a peek at you
across the mirror
to imagine a likeness
an aliveness
possible to embody
on this side of the glass.

on James 1:23-25
