What’s weird about a mirror is that I can never see what my mirror looks like without me.

I’ve peeked at it ’round corners but my forehead I still see. It still sees me.

I’ve hung down from the ceiling by my ankles and my toes, but it still knows.

I’ve tried to run right past it, but as fast as I can go, I still show.

What’s weird about a mirror is that I have never known what my mirror looks like all alone.
