working in shapes

Time took up sculpting
but decided one day
there must be a better way
for a century with a taste
for gargoyle gore

to expend libido
especially with virgins
coming to this coastal
community rich in
educational institutes.

Of course a great complaint
arose; wrote a note
using the most venomous pen
at hand which means the bottom
drawer for pens containing

ink for scripting scathing prose;
it ought to serve both parties,
it went, to consider that if not
for gargoyle gore
coupled with libido

expenditure, sculpting would be
shorn of every stitch of
meaning or purpose or joy
and being basically without
form in a corporeal sense,

well, what passes for hands
are covered in a mess of marble dust.
Observing from the wings
adventurous molding with clays
only makes firefighting busier.


About Timmy the Scribbler

Love to write all kinds of stuff I love writing so many different kinds of stuff it is a constant struggle to narrow the focus to a manageable handful and let the others go. But a few years ago I dipped my fingers into a poetry pie and of all my uncertainties, one thing that is no uncertainty is that it is one passion that must remain, so maybe that's the one. I do dearly delight in chopping up fictional works into stanzas and syllables.
