Fifty-four redecorates her day
In passionate pursuit of near perfection.
For her each detail elevates the whole,
The vivid essence culled from the collection,
Yielding grace no fragment can convey.

Facing entropy, she has her way,
Overcoming dullness through selection,
Undoing the conventions of her role,
Revealing unseen radiance through rejection.
