Venus de Milo

Written by: Michael Smith

Set in stone
I might be
As jewel
Her, Aphrodite

Eyes, but who 
Inward stare
Upon pure nude
Venus de Milo

Cold cold marbel
Questionable masterpiece 
Or warm warm rains
Crying towards Greece

However shall beauty
Reach out to thee
To worlds passed
Time has never pleased

But, by any other name
I am woman; figurine
Upon others pedestals
I am thee
