comes from a poem that sort of inspired me, by the persian poet rumi.. an excerpt:

"we are the mirror as well as the face in it
we are tasting the taste this minute
of eternity. we are pain
and what cures pain, both. We are
the sweet cold water and the jar that pours.

I want to hold you close like a lute,
so we can cry out with loving

You would rather throw stones at a mirror?
I am your mirror, and here are your stones."

plus i think it was also the name of a velvet underground song? i cant quite remember
