bill cunningham


we will miss his voice

we heard joy in it

it was the voice

of a man

who loved people

and who loved his life

we will miss his photography

he exposed the beauty

hidden all around us

and he taught us

how to see the art

in the quotidian

we will miss his commentary

bill cunningham

reminded us

that we are

at our most beautiful

when we are our truest selves

we will miss him
