Written for: The Twiglets #165 – “dripping clay”
of elongated man
looks like dripping clay
The empty canvas sat on the floor
as the artist dripped splotches
of clay here and there.
turtles, bunnies, dogs
children having fun molding
There was a young man from Bombay
content years while his poor fiancé
waited and waited
for marriage, frustrated
said I’m done, you have feet of clay.
