the sculpture

  • what he sculpts sees
  • but he must be able
  • to create her
  • as best as he can
  • his work is judged by another
  • be it her lover, sister or brother
  • he must please them
  • as she pleases her lover
  • his finger work to scuplt
  • the woman
  • he is honored
  • as he was choose to do this
  • he smiles and addresses the woman
  • to step off the table where she stands
  • she does as he commands
  • she smiles demurely
  • at his work and is surprised
  • but was he wise
  • that is for the person 
  • to decide
  • she is to be his bride
The End
