The MET After Being Fingerprinted

By | 1 September 2023

I wish I could be in awe over statues

I wander stare wait for one to fill me

goosebumps wonder whatever makes us come

back to this idea of brilliance

but though they are human they are not human enough

I wish I could take in the stiffness

surrendering to these people and faces

instead I stare blankly at the folds & decay

shellac-colors reflecting light glow

like sweat this one the most human and therefore

the one I look at more than once

in a way that makes me feel less hollow

his ear hanging lobe

unattached eyes forever past me
