Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
show her the fairest of them all.

The lady stands
in front of the mirror,

Black eyeliner,
hair up the highest it can go;

The lady stands
in front of herself,

Lo, is the truth;
Lo, is her.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
show her the fairest of us all.

The lady stands
in front of the mirror,

Smashes it into pieces,
blood and glass;

The lady kneels
on the ground,

A shard in each hand;
Still, she looks back at her.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
make her understand, she is the fairest of her all

–Β “Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall” — for Val.
