Unfortunately the link to the poem was not working so I don't know who Geraldine is. But I think I prefer Mary LOL!!
Looks like you stretched Geraldine horizontally and added glasses?

In one I actually made myself slightly thinner and in the other slightly wider (or a lot wider). I was trying to show two facets of myself, my persona that I prefer to show the world and my stupid and out of touch self that I often see when I upset myself by doing something stupid. It's not really accurate because my hair should be combed in one nad not the other etc. But I was in a hurry when I did it, I needed it for a deadline.

For Lacrima, Glass! I am thinking of course, of a LOOKING glass, and how we see ourselves. In this case, it's like the zen question am I a butterfly dreaming I am a man or a man dreaming I am a butterfly. Am I "Geraldine"imagining myself Mary or Mary imagining myself as Geraldine.
