Raise a Sculpture

I will never bear children
shall never raise them.
I do not have mechanical means
nor the emotional.
I won’t have kids
and I’m all right with that.

I wouldn’t know
what to do with those things;
how to hold them
to heal them
or house train them.

I don’t want kids
so it’s just as well
I can’t have them.
My art will be my babies
my paintings serve as kids.
I will name my stories as I would my child.
and my dances like beautiful girls.

This one is called Patricia.
Come out
little girl
and show everybody
how proud you make me.
