[From the famed statue of the goddess “Nike”]
So . . .
you’re so angelic that you don’t need
or a bra?
But . . .
you’re not so angelic that you don’t need
or a belly button?
(Wait . . .
did you really have an umbilical cord?
because I dont’ believe you.)
And . . .
if gravity has no effect
(as evidenced by your gown and breasts)
what’s the need of wings?
Or . . .
are you as we all are:
created with questions concerning purpose,
Always wanting to defy the forces pushing us down,
while lacking feet to do so;
Always attached to our pedestals that bind us.
