Solid to liquid

molten

malleable

poured into a cast

of human dimensions

specifications

 

Liquid to solid

hard

mirrored

tight in a chamber

propelled through air

parting

 

A perfect hole

penetrate

shatter

pierce flesh and bone

stop a beating heart

silence…

 

Man’s sculpture

crumpled

abandoned

our tragic legacy

scattered as shells

rust to dust
