Sui Generis
Author: Gary Lehmann


So fickle a thing is man that

one of a kind

can mean a prized possession,
unique and special,
possessing qualities both needed and rare,
irreplaceable, not for general consumption,
impeccable, sovereign, and precise,

but at the turn of a leaf

one of a kind

can mean frighteningly odd,
untranslatable, without peer,
and thus without clear value,
unneeded, not generally understood,
impure, aloof, and inaccessible.

So fickle a thing is man.
