It must be done with mirrors 

My head that rests on nothing in mid-air

Where is my body, where oh where?

I can see a on a small and lonely planet

Traveling through casual space past aloof stars 

Across the way of indifferent suns

O, Bright Star bring back my body to me

I shall hide from reality before the mirrors break
