Mirror man 04:38
MIRROR MAN Every time I see your face every time it seems more out of place now I can't even recall what it really looks like because, the last time I saw you and I don't want to annoy you there was too much fuzz about the face that was... you? At times there's just you when you'll have to reinvent yourself just like a book on a shelf sometimes needs some dusting off with a cleansing cloth... dust it off till it's had enough sometimes it's time to readjust yourself Every now and then every now and then I'll say it again... every now and then you have to reinvent yourself look at me I tell you, you got to readjust the you in your self When the mirror cracks just look straight back just set your face against this anxiety read another book, readjust your look there's plenty of self on the shelf in front of you, of me when the mirror lies in front of you when the mirror lies in front of me take another look, just take another book why don't you and when you, and then you, and again you can be you now, can't you see... you, I… can be me
NOVEMBER NIGHT A terrible November night with a drizzling rain that sweeps even the bravest off the streets and my favourite bar lies, alas and that's for certain too far headed West to battle with that cold wet curtain For the first time since many years as the years flee by I will return home HOME where my untimely appearance will be considered as the first step on the road that leads toward penitence all beginnings are hard, and better late than never my wife will say But first I'll have to buy a newspaper for tonight near the fire because when I don't read my silence is chilling my silence is killing for my housemates as I understand very well that nothing NOTHING is so depressing as the presence of someone who sits silently staring as if he's totally alone one lonely bloke who never tells a joke who never pats you on the back to give you some courage during your tough days who never asks: how are you doing or: are you happy – Words based on the first page of Het Dwaallicht, a story by Willem Elsschot (1882-1960).
