I carved myself today….
The old rotting wood?
These chinks now have new chinks to play with.
I made the nose myself
It was hard to control.
But I love it!
The hips got too wide.
The legs as thick as a tree trunk.
But they fit.
There was some drooping here and there
but I used some sticks to the keep them afloat.
What do you know?
There is a crooked spot… but it will get the job done.
But the shoulders were broad broad
To take on the whole world… if necessary.
The lips thick enough to voice all displeasure
Gentle enough to smile and laugh
in the face of all opposition to my beauty, intelligence. my strength of conviction.
The hands were enough
to fling you out the way
if I must.
Gentle but Knowledgeable enough to heal.
Feet big enough to walk any path taken.
It was tall enough to overlook your limited vision
It was firm enough to survive any attack.
Today I carved myself…
It will live forever…
