The Trouble With Marble

Understandably,
you're surprised to see
a penis
on ancient marble
statuary;

but not so
to see a nose.

One is not so good a substitute
I suppose.

Still,
for the legions missing
from marble faces,
noses must be pretty good
as substitute wood.

heya I just discovered that you're dead, then who writes your poetry here? Do you have some eternal hands that can type although you might not have known typing since it wasn't the age of computers when you were alive.
