False Idols by Valentina Cano

She was a moment trapped in resin,
dry, quiet in his hands.
He couldn’t choose where to place her,
where to drape her form.
He made no choice
and she warmed in his hands.
Second by second,
she was no longer herself
but an elongation,
a mutation,
carved from his touch.
