Mirror

Art by Francine van Hove

She cannot see herself

as I see her.

Her mirror image rebels.

It dismisses her beauty,

refuses her desirability,

overrules her sensuality,

is cruel to her curves.

She finds herself wanting.

Whereas I

can only stare

and sigh

in awe.

Mirror

She steams up

the mirror

with her breath

and writes his name.

 

Wiping the glass clean

with her sleeve

she sees herself

smiling

in the reflection.
