Poetry: “Hollow”

Wire and wood
Heart replica sculpted
With the intention
Of demonstrating
Anatomical accuracy

Smooth planes
Hickory brown
Cherry cedar
Rose mahogany
Finely sanded
Light coat of varnish
Finished product
Voilà!

Accomplishment
Sense of pride
Momentary joy
Fleeting high

Coming down
Ground landing

Return to hollow
Empty chambers
