One From a Kind
From a library of diaries, a curated
Memoir--the installation, as set,
Prompts the performance with
The student, intern, practitioner--
The legacy conservator prevails,
Presides over the polemic.
The sketches etch the foregone
History; a quaint commentary interprets
The life themes of present past tenses,
The tensions not to be forgotten.
The relationship, advanced beyond years,
Baffles the profound; astuteness disturbs
The repute par excellance.
In this environment, the magic remains.
Wit is excelled by brilliancy--the
Aesthetic, anthropological fidelity.
