[To A Mirror]
Altichiero's Beheading of St. George
Meaning is a distrust of men

--Even now, when I have All The Meaning
In The World
, you still do not trust me.

Even... were I to put on a different hat

--There!... & you still do not trust me
(of course not: You are a fool!)

& how do I know I am no fool myself? ... Look
at this hat I'm wearing: Is this the hat
of a fool? Obviously not

                 --Here! Put it on
yourself... It'll fit you perfectly. Go & do!

You see! Look in my mirror. Perfectly! THAT
is obviously the hat of a fool.

Meaning: It's merely --all-- distrust!

Hey! Where'd you think you're going with my hat!?!
