Mirror-Writer

Handwriting, in general, being
a lost art these days, I don't
get much practice but still I
mirror-write pretty well.

Right, like Da Vinci. Or left,
more precisely. And I suppose
there's no good reason to keep it up,
as handwriting fades into

notes written on misted mirrors,
to be wiped clear and forgotten.
But it's something I can do,
something a little different,

and we all like that, don't we?
Even if it is only visible
to ourselves. Even if it can
only be seen in a mirror.
