Reflection 3



I am not that.
I reflect that.
All reflections are inadequate
representations of that.
Who said that was their purpose?
Reflections are perfect.
What is being reflected is perfect.
Distortion, then, is perfect.
Perfection is contingent,
and infinite.
I am contingent
but not infinite.
I am a finite reflection
of a perfect infinity.
