|This is pretty fantastic.
I love the contrast of modern stars and beauty with the reference to the ancient gods. It ages the mirror into timelessness and hints at how celebrity is like a modern pantheon.
The line about the rearview made the mirror relatable as well. I felt that anyway, with the mirrors snark but to throw in that yearning was a great touch. Probably everyone feels some of that. But perhaps, particularly the artists and writers. We try to make ideas bigger with our words.
There's a strong sense of personality in the character of the mirror. A bit of tiredness at human folly and sadness and strength because of what it has seen but there's still hope there, to see better, a longing to experience true beauty. (A longing that the mirror may be trying to hide behind its attitude.) But in the end, trapped by the truth.
Nicely done. :)
