Statue

make me a man
of ashes and dust
and I will show you

I grind glass to make sand

I mix the mud in my hand

shape me a man
of wisdom and truth
and I will laugh

I bake earth to make stone

I mix the mud with the bone

show me a man
of stature and grace
and I will show you

I hold the moment
I try to hold
the moment

but it
terrifies

so I let it go

make me a man
of ashes and dust
and I will show you

I shape the earth in my hand

I hold earth in my hand
