What the eye smells by Patricia Furstenberg

Poem

I wanted to be
The lace on the wave
The curve in the ocean
When it swells with love.
But I am not,
I am me.
I wanted to be
The spark in the sand
The diamond that shines
Mightier than the sun.
I am but me.
Let my eye not smell.
Better
This way.
I am my mother’s right hand
And my father’s left foot.
I am trial and error
Flesh, bone, and will.
Not perfect.
Not curvy.
Not lacey.
No spark.
But honest
I’m me.
True to the heart.
