don’t go

sculpture 2.jpg


he left me because he could not mold me
not satisfied with what I had become; she
said I was too much, heavy and
ponderous in the middle of
a long mid-western summer;
made of stone I wanted only
to be accepted as stone

      Well that’s something to chew on. The photo is there because I originally wrote this as a response to a dverse prompt. I used to participate in dversepoets a couple of years ago, and someone posted this photo and I was inspired to pen those lines.


Give me your two cents
