* * *

Narcissus, gazing at his image in the pool, wept.
A friend passing by saw him and asked,
"Narcissus, why do you weep?"
"Because my face has changed," Narcissus said.
"Do you cry because you grow older?"
"No. I see that I am no longer innocent. I have been gazing at
myself long and long, and so doing have worn my innocence."
