a body made of wood

11 Sep

watch out as you caress

you could end up with

your hands full of splinters

I have a body made of wood

old and full of mold

held together by a few rusty nails

will you plane out the roughness?

will you cover me with your shellac

your varnish, and your lovely paint?

it will be a difficult job, I know

but not a thankless one

for I long for that day when you can touch me

without those heavy gloves
