The investigator comes
biographer of our lives
taking notes, referencing
strange questions verify
unconfirmed links, “yes
that was I” ready to move
but coming back, retrace
old steps, to ask us why
then other acquaintances
compiled, collated before
some intervening event
brings new light or angles
to old conclusions, revises
data, newer perspectives
seen, process seldom means.
