Make Me Danaid, Augusta

Image

I don’t want to be

a part of a finely tuned machine

~

where each part, cog, spring, and sprocket

has a purpose that it better not

~

deviate from or the whole thing

~

becomes obsolete.  The smooth cool

of sculpted marble is how I’d

~

rather flow.  No rough edges or points

of failure.  White silken lines of details

~

so intricate that it could only be

marble or flesh.  Perfection

~

in stone that can weather

the years, instead of breaking after

~

so many miles of minutes.

  1. Nice contrast. In our culture it seems as though we are just you as mention with the sprocket. Often times we are run ragged to stay afloat. We have to have rough edges. A tough interior. I like the concept of the sculpted piece where it is has great detail in it. A sign of a greater experience. Yes…. A little social I’d say. Love your work.
