A Writer’s Work On A Woman II

With these hands I sculpted you
Better than nature could.
What I wanted was to become a wordsmith
But instead you are whom my actions pursued.
And so the stains on these sheets
Are not what they should.
I expected ink
But instead it’s sweat.
So here I submit my work to you
I hope you score fair.
