Yes.

At myself I glance
But upon reflection
I should stop and stare
At my own perfection.

@1jane1,
Grammar rules aren't really a necessity when you are writing poetry.

@tsarstepan,
Yes, otherwise ee cummings wouldn't be held in such high esteem.

@1jane1,
Sometimes I give poetry lessons.

I wouldn't. To the west I glance. It can't be about purity if you're looking at yourself. Law says a mirror in writing must always be deception. Behold do I see thine eyes or mine, dear brother, mother or something like that. Though it speaks so true, I really see it is you. I see it is you. Deception like in 'mirror mirror on the wall. Who is the fairest of them all?'-folk tale

I think I think I think I saw...

I really really think I saw...

Jesus Christ super star.
