Mind You                                                        Carrie Bisciotti


A statue, a still life
She observed beyond the
Finger-printed,
Eraser-shaving-covered
Table.
And for three minutes
This continued.
What was occurring
In that pale coral organ
Within her skull
I won’t know
Because to ourselves,
We have our own.
And thank God
There are no restrictions
Within that organ
Whose relation to the world,
And to its possessors
We have failed to fully
Apprehend.
And for a moment,
Her mind appears to me
As solid stone--
Becoming no different
From that state
