POEM — Whittler

After Laurie Ogden’s Digging

 

Sandpaper and craft knife

and sand knife and craft paper.

Master sculptor, she guarantees

she’ll build your thighs to be head-turners.

 

The insides she

shapes spin if not

perfectly then

serviceably.

 

She’ll build your thighs to be head-turners.

Don’t you want to be a world for

someone? Be inventoried

correctly, spare parts soothed?
