Kristin Higgins

The Sculptor Manque

How easy it would have been

for your tongue of highly polished silver

with the finest edges

to smooth and shape me

into your favorite pattern.

 

How easy

had I never learned to hone myself

with my own tools

had I not seen

that your favorite pattern left no room for mine

and that your tongue

was no tool of love.
