She holds a two-faced mirror,
one side to return the light,
the other, held to an obsessive
scrutiny, to return its cipher.

Now the long stare of her fear
speculates. She must gauge
urgency between the unknown
and evidence from this image

as its puzzle answers back
again from the factual glass.
Like a cruel mute there is no
sign, and a flat reflection

refuses to explain what she
sees in the dark of her lesion.
