I am getting too old for this
for peering into a magnifying mirror
whose sole mission
is to bring into sharp focus
each imperfection
as though
with a little care and attention
I can achieve what passes for beauty

as if growing old gracefully
doesn’t include age spots
or laugh lines
or proof that I have fully lived

I am starting to think
mirrors are passé.
