Mirror Mirror

And of course you express it

Instead of bottling it up

The gymnasts

Breaking their ankles

Visiting their cousins

Making do with a pastimes that consumes their lives

And I

The mirror behind the lens

Straining for exactitude

Assigning a ten point scale to a performance

On the stage, on the world
