On the edge of the desk
Like on a precipice, see the Nashville man
hands in pockets
(Exhibit R is a traveling exhibit: next stop, home?)
See the color of the eyes?
See the light trapped in the chest?
Now lean in closer.  If you look here
and here, you can see evidence of gentleness.
Along the limb lines, we can see in his stance
Decisions waiting
See these small postural indicators? They are signs
of inquiry among the people of that time.
No? Look closely.  The marks are subtle.
This is a cautious man.
