    Compact Dusk, compact masterful language, too. 'I wonder if one tint/ ever survives the harm of seeming unique' - the word 'harm'
    and words: 'Posied-up portrait on our palette knife'
    'Redundant as a stopsign in italic'
    a perfect last line: 'The face on which my profile leaves no print'

    I love the third stanza and the title. (Report) Reply
