René Magritte -The False Mirror

René Magritte
The False Mirror
Paris 1929



Go ahead. Meditate into this painting. By imagining the running of your finger along the wide and perfectly flat ridge of the lid underneath.
Sliding it slowly. With a “Come see Me” grin. From corner to corner.
Back and forth.
Or by reaching up and into it
to wiggle your fingers behind the
black ball .
Your favorite pupil.
To tickle it your way.
To coax it out gently.
Floating and dilating.
Swelling and vibrating.
Then sending it back in
with a gently breathed
“I love You”
To begin again.


NOTE: Picture above is of a framed poster-the original is the painting referenced.
