Mirror mirror on the wall

Who is the fairest of them all?

 

Definitely not this guy. He isn't working on a factory that produces fairness cream, oh no. There's nothing 'fair' about the machinery he works on or their emissions. In a recent survey by US News, this place wasn't voted 'The most habitable, multicultural joint in the world besides Vancouver'-either.

 

I have no idea what purpose the mirror serves. Perhaps it helps the worker take a last glance of himself before a cloud of carbon soot and aluminum particles engulf him, perhaps there's a poet in him that hopes for a painting hidden somewhere much like that of Dorian Gray..which wouldn't let him age..alas, Dorian Gray is a work of fiction..his life, isn't.

Larger? Stronger? Darker?
