performance and pose


performance and pose . . . giving way, finally,
to a performance that there is no pose,
and a pose that there is no performance,

giving way, finally,
to what a body knows all along,

namely,

that the performance and pose
never was of need at all,

but merely a reflection in poor glass
in a rich frame, or rich glass in a poor one,

alas, poor me,

pour me, O Life, pour me . . .
