The Sculptor Poses

Be still, Bastet.
Our friends have gone
to some expense
to acquire "something
to remember us by,"
though how a thing so flat,
so smooth, could aid
their memories a whit,
I cannot say.

I could sculpt their souls,
you know, build up each virtue,
gouge out each vice,
carve forgiveness in deep relief,
smooth some with their kindness,
scar others with mistakes.
I could put nobility 
and baseness on display,
covered with a filigree 
of laughter or tears,
the feelings of years.

But if they came to see
with only their eyes,
they would not know themselves.


  1. Loved the style and flow.
    This line hit me:
    I could sculpt their souls,

    Eddie :)

  2. "T's Subplot" has been included in our A Sunday Drive for this week. Be assured that we hope this helps to point even more visitors in your direction.
