You remember nothing of those now
and the mirror won't remind you

Struggling to traverse the empty expanse of meaning,

how the mirror aeons ago chose
to no longer chase and retrieve that
which you let slip from your grasp;
You and the mirror both now wait,
for the return of the Prodigal,
in vain.
