Picasso's 'Bust of Sylvette'

(In 1983 it was determined that this outdoor concrete sculpture in Greenwich Village was being damaged by acid rain and treatment with a sealant was undertaken to protect ''her.'')

acid rain, falling ...

on the streets of New York,

on Sylvette

the scaffolding

leans against Sylvette's face

a flight of pigeons

''she's an old friend ... ''

a professor pauses to watch

the protective resin treatment

moonlight

and a jazz riff, playing

across her face
