Reflected

sculpter’s hands

A mirror to those around

reflecting back the parts of themselves

they want to see in the person before them.

No innate personality,

a tabula rasa

that gets etched in then polished clean

over and over again.

Clay molded and unmolded

molded and unmolded

surely one day

will become overworked

and collapse.
