last request (Valentine's Day Comp) Melanie A. B. Mineo

last request
take the ashes of our bones
and mold beauty with your hands
from burned flesh sculpt the clay
                to tears of earth
                to blood of rock
                to flowers
                as water    drip
                wears away the sighs of  guernica
                and cubist lovers
take the love you never knew
and with your hands
                smell its form
                feel its sight
                taste its curves
and when you're done
                                      paint it blue then
                                      to give us a name

Melanie A. B. Mineo
