"Good-bye," said the dying man to the looking glass
held up to him. "We won't be seeing each other again."

(Valery, Analects, trans. Stuart Gilbert)

Now was he saying this to the looking glass, or to
his reflection? Or was he saying this to himself,
as his thoughts washed up in fog and dissolution?

Answer: He was saying this to others.

And who was holding the glass?

Answer: His reflection.

And on what shores?

Answer: His own.
