“I love mirrors. They let one pass through the surface of things.” Claude Chabrol

When I Look

A mirror is just a mirror, right?
you can't see through it,
it's not a window,
or is it?
When I look at myself,
below the skin
to my real self,
past the grime and scratches,
the blind,
that is soul window.
