I walk past an orchid and say,
You are no Eden.
I walk past a breeze and say,
You are no immortal.
To a girl walking in sunfire
I say, You are no fairy.
To a spring green lizard
I say, You are no coconut.
To a girl veiled with rhinestone diamonds
I say, You are no Lucy.
I walk up a stairwell
And say, You are no ladder.
And to the mirror,
You are.
