He Stands Before the Mirror*

He stands before the mirror,
full-frontal. He moves to the
side. Half his image is gone.
He says, “My image is half
gone. I’m half gone.” He
returns to where he was —
full frontal. He is there, fully.
He breathes a sigh of relief.
Love whispers in the man’s
ear, “Did you see me? I’m
here. I moved aside with
you and moved back. I’m
here with you — full-frontal.
