When I look into your eyes,
I see the light of day.
When I behold your ears,
I hear the sound of thunder.
Your nose and mouth
tell me of the atmosphere.
Your lungs record the history
of a previous life in salt and sea.
Your limbs betray the secrets of gravity,
your brain of electrochemistry.
Every living thing reflects
the shape of its environment.
When we look into a mirror,
we discover reality, ourselves,
a prehistoric legacy of co-evolution.
