poemtry (i do not know what i'm doing) 

irritated by the
imperfections
in the marble

its surface chipped
sublime cubic form
interrupted
by negative space

the scars almost seem
to draw shapes
a torso, shoulders, face
veiled in folded silk

this figure, this child of destruction
defined by its absences
defined by her imperfections
might
she hold a beauty all her own?

@chemelia i like how the "might" stands alone like that, briefly evoking the noun and the implications of a figure made of stone, framed by the words defined, beauty and imperfections
