the tip of your finger

the tip of your tongue
a face you remember
back when you were young
 
the tip of an iceberg
the tip of a flame
a face you remember
but not quite the name
 
a tip of your balance
a tip of your hat
a face you remember
but whose face is that ?
 
the face is your own
as the mirror reflects
the image is backwards
but you don't suspect
 
the face that you see
and will often inspect
is forwards to others
for them to detect
 
their faces to you
are the ones they neglect
this sure is confusing
in all retrospect
