He asks me quietly
where metal ends
and flesh begins.

Grey hour-glass grains
pour out of history,
flowing from the bronze

Through his lens and eye,
and a mind hard-wired
by bearing witness;

His monochrome bleeds,
defining softly the colours
of the past's compassion

And the blank tones
of our own fear-
fuelled indifference.
