Marble fragile?

I trace the veins

Once mined

Once quarried

Hewn from the ancient

Stone

Who would have known

Stone

Could be fragile

Indelibly etched

Like a lover’

s face

Lines traced

With the tips of my fingers

map a course across the rock/across the polished surface

That separates

You from me

Like myth from the living

Truth
