Burkowski Contest

his mirror reflects
  crow's feet and sad, worried eyes
    the unguarded twin
      he turns away in alarm
         refusing to face the man

    Mirrors cannot hide what is there in front of them.... they can, however, reflect the truth of what they see....Nice writing, Tim. Congratulations..... Jake
