lyrics

The Mirror (V. Polichar)

And in the mirror, see your face again:
the ghost that haunts the spaces in between.
I meet your eyes as if I don't intend to turn my head
and walk off and leave the scene, and you believe.

This is a photograph, a replica.
There is no answer when I call you now.
I'm left to ponder the apocrypha, the toxic pen
that could write these cryptic words and just move on.

And I look again to the mirror
and think how beautiful I am
and how finely shaped my skull,
and how little remains in the garden
if I go walking out on the flowers
with my arch so full...

I presuppose that I will meet my end --
that Death will claim me with her long wild arms --
that I'll keep dancing until I can't spend my breath on flowers
or my eyes upon your charms, and I will fight...

And I look again to the mirror
and think how beautiful I am
and how finely shaped my skull,
and how little remains in the garden
if I go walking out on the flowers
with my heart so full...
