(NaPoWriMo Challenge: April 26, 2018)

I see you as an archaeologist of the arts,
at the crux of things and looking for the heart,

a safarist with a holster of nets
versed in cryptology and novelettes,

searching for the beautiful mind
in the overlooked and wunderkind.

We hear your thoughts in conference calls,
on motor tours, in lecture halls;

and Iā€™m always curious what you think
of curios and pieces on the brink.

You are as interesting as antiquities,
a modern woman with sensibilities.
These poems for NaPoWriMo were inspired by a poem I did years ago for my friend Michelle after hearing she passed away, 30 poems for inspiring women connected to me. The title now says "33 Women" because the poem to Michelle poem had already been written as well as two prologues I posted March 31.
