sculpture

I’d love to make you a sculpture
With a blunt knife of love and a chisel of compassion
I’d love to make you a sculpture
With harridan hammer and mandrake mind
To speak into the inner room of your soul
Resembling a yawn from a hippo
Reimaging a flower with concrete petals
Resembling the lyre of Orpheus to symbolize triumph of love over death
Form, figure, fish-finger monolith from 2001

Or resembling nothing but alluding to everything
Abstract but oozing pathos
A 3-D polaroid of my heart’s longing
What do you think?
Would you like it to be edible?
Would we stand beside it?
Would you stare sensuously into my eyes and say:
‘I don’t get it’
