The Other 180 Degrees of His World

West,

One scene of his life to

complete 360,

the other 180

from 1980 —

five young would be

ballerinas,

four in black

a hoop they are holding;

one in white

looking on with

piercing sight,

observing the

drama unfolding.

The scene plays out behind

(always behind)

the green leather chair;

he need not see.

The image sears his mind;

he knows the drama,

in both joy and pain,

from memory.
