Here’s my 23 year-old daughter’s poetic interpretation of the mirror image…My version is still working its way up through the topsoil!

[Untitled] as in, that’s the title

Another half reflects your whole
In [im]perfect clarity
(Like Justin sang)
For you to see (or shield)

Clearly fragile
The way we hold it
(Our own and others)
Reveals who we have been (with)

Even shattered
It remains itself
(Though not what it once was)
A heart in part(s)
