The kindly author
in his well-posed portrait
belies a sense of decorum
lacking in his work.

From the academic dress,
astute expression, one would
hardly guess that his work
would be populated with
war-time horrors, extended
bedroom scenes.

Until one looks deeper
into the eyes, sees the worn
image glancing back
beneath the wrinkles and dents.
