Reflections

Here, we turn the mirrors over when we don’t enjoy the view.
When we see them scratched or chipped we throw them out and cut one new.
But then we leave the fingerprints and oil streaks and smears,
So that if we have to look at them we can’t quite see them clear.
The shattered mirrors fill the trash until it overflows.
How much bad luck the shards reflect I do not care to know.
