What Is A Man

                                                     

What Is “A Man”? 

   A man is:
when you sculpt a piggy bank of clay giving it the shape of a man,
notching a slot where a rib should be.
   A man is:
when you sculpt a piggy bank of clay giving it the shape of a man
to bring to the market to sell.
   
A man is:
when you sculpt a piggy bank of clay giving it the shape of a man
to turn the heads of children carried in their parent’s arms.

   A man is:
when you sculpt a piggy bank of clay giving it the shape of a man
to return home barely wrapped after failing to sell.
   A man is:
when you sculpt a piggy bank of clay giving it the shape of a man
to bequeath to your children to break its belly when
coins reach the throat.

   A man is:
when you sculpt a piggy bank of clay giving it the shape of a man
without being able to explain how.
