The completion of a disappearance.

An obituary for Patricia Travers, The New York Times, 3/6/10

It can be said of prevailing airs and lesser
Disturbances that force and grace

Lie in tandem.

One grunts for the grist where
It gives way to skinning light.

The other, because it was asked to do so
Holds the camera,

So grievous a bow born to a child's wish.
