Louise Glück / The Mirror



by Louise Glück

Louise Glück / El espejo

Louise Glück / O espelho

Watching you in the mirror I wonder

what it is like to be so beautiful

and why you do not love

but cut yourself, shaving

like a blind man. I think you let me stare

so you can turn against violence,

needing to show me how you scrape the flesh away

scornfully and without hesitation

until I see you correctly,

as a man bleeding, not

the reflection I desire.
