Bernini This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

May 20, 2010
I can think of nothing but Bernini,
nothing but the veins on the hands of Hades
and how they grip at Persephone's flesh.

As you lie with your back to me,
your arm twisted careless to your face
and the sheets tangled around your legs,
I could carve you, gather you
from the same pale marble that breathes.
