Turning To Stone
A lesser man would have been turned to stone
by such a look,
such a dirty look,
certainly worthy of a Gorgon,
but I survived it
I’m glad to say
though I still look uneasily
at the stone statues
commemorating the famous and infamous,
the religious idols,
the gargoyles,
devils and pixies
and I wonder,
was it the skill of the unknown carvers,
or was it just a look that did the trick?
Well, we’ll never know.
