Thief of Facsimiles

The mirror man lives in his mirrored house and ripples with the waves.

He is a thief, clever-fingered, snatching from mirrors, from the reflections on the water, and with his stolen likenesses he lines his infinite halls, and builds his glinting treasure troves.

Be careful you do not see the mirror man at work, for he will snatch away your reflection too, and you will be left hollow as he.

This is for Three Line Tales 271. Thanks to Sonya for running the challenge and Cristina Gottardi for providing the prompt photo!
