Mirror Image

The visage staring out at me
from this mirror of Polaroid paper,
near identical to my own.
Hazel eyes, dirty blond hair
in a ponytail, the face, the nose.
The girl here wears ballet garb,
possessing a poise that I have never boasted.
There is only one other with those features, that poise.
My God, am I her daughter,
or her clone?
