Marquetry~by Paul F. Lenzi





“Self-Portrait in Marquetry” by Rob Milam

memory bones

grainy wood

graphic elements

uniquely shaped

subtly shaded

fit neatly

to the purpose

of portrait

a picture of life

told with pieces

of moments

small fragments

unforgotten of time

made to last

to outlive

the experiences

from which each

was so carefully

artfully cut

to memorialize

and perhaps add

a lustrous cachet

to an otherwise

dully prosaic
