For Diane Arbus

What is dwarf and what is freak
but something that the well think weak

a break of bone or broken heart
that forces nerves to look or start

while down by third on lonely street
they lose their will and will defeat

then leave the eye in need of light
to count the hurt of single sight

and once thus seen the well are dry
for having looked into the eye

of all that is yet still to be
and all that’s well entirely

conforms to love it will become
and then the two things is the one
