Appearing As Needed 


In a mirror close at hand only your head appears. In a mirror farther off, your entire body is reflected.  In convex and concave mirrors, you are fat or thin (and on the ‘mirror’ of a scale, you weigh what scales weigh). Without the least bit of your effort, you appear just as the situation demands.  

Which is your real appearance?  What is it that appears this way and that?
Seems clear this ‘what’ can’t be pinned down. (Sometimes, even, you appear as the friend walking towards you, or a stranger, or as a sparrow flitting, or as thunder.)
Sometimes you reach out, like a hand to the mirror surface touching itself.

All the while you are composed, taking it easy: after all, without the least effort, each time you appear just right.
