This mirror really exists but I have changed Sally's name to protect the innocent, supposing there are any.

Sally's Mirror

I'm an Art Nouveau mirror
With feet like a sphinx
And riddles between them
in cosmetic inks,

Which daily you face
Though you foam at the mouth,
Tear out hair, scratch your chin,
And grotesquely grimace;

Though my window grows hoar
From the steam of your gasps,
Though for clear sight you claw,
Though your blunted edge rasps!

But when bleeding you flee
And when plucke'd you fly,
Then take from this monster
Its face and its breast,

Then the toothless well arm,
The drip make powder-dry,
And wield forth for the day
The last answer you guessed.
