Lumps of Clay

This poem is from one of my older books, I wrote in 1996

(the year before I graduated) shhhhh!

 

Lumps of Clay

 

Lumps of Clay.

Nude Sculptures.

Michelangelo’s Poetry,

Magnificent David.

 

Holding silt.

Clay, Grey.

Sculpting you from memory.

Your outter shell, 

pleasantly brick.

 

A mimic of you,

In my palm.

I hate the way,

you turned out all wrong!

 

I am going to put you back in water.
