                                          I

                                          pare

                                          down

                                          this

                                          poem

                                          like

                                          Giacometti

                                          pared

                                          down

                                          his

                                          sculptures

                                          until

                                          nothing

                                          is

                                          left

                                          to

                                         work

                                         with

                                         but

                                         a

                                         gaunt

                                         profile

                                        and

                                        body

                                        on

                                        a

                                        seemingly

                                        unsteady base.
