The shadows are a crazy trick of the light;
a flicker of action plays against the screen.
This is his genius, his pushing boundaries
of visual media, hat swapped for smile,
a matter of perfect placement. The future
has nothing on him, existing beyond time.
We share a secret smile of admiration,
the silent sacrament of understanding how
this little man can light up one’s heavy heart.
Pulcinella and the Tumblers -- Giovanni Battista Tiepolo
