you wonder how long dead sculptures put so much life into marble blocks
made them breathe
made them live
hell - you are no marble statue and yet
their eyes seem more alive than yours 

this is reverse art
something living becoming rock
hardening, melting into something
grey and indistinguishable

your face has less expression that apollo in all his
naked marble, than gargoyles on granite walls

this is reverse art
an idea becoming incomplete
flesh becoming stone

you wonder how long dead sculptures put so much life into marble blocks
and you wonder if a chisel and knife to your skin would make you breathe again
