SLEIGHT WORK MAKES NOTHING HAPPEN
(A New Year message)
A rueful apprentice to handiwork speaks directly into your ear:
Beauty is a number / for some and some / singing and dancing / around an open fire / for others some / language serves as a / constant like I love you / which of course implies / so much else picayune / kinds of things if you / stand back and look / for the bigger picture // when we squeeze / our faces together / in the curtained booth / and smile buckteeth / and braces.
