“Unidentified,” May Sketches

Fashion me a jade army five-hundred strong.
My aesthetic: carios, kinētikos. The surreal.
With your brush sculpt the stone (cyan, aquamarine),
with your hands teach the grace of sexual momentum,
then tongue-test the folds and wrinkles of these fleshy facsimiles.
Upon the shoulders and the across the chest engrave the ornaments of armor,
along the edges carve the curves of the naked human form,
around the neck don each with a necklace (fangs, feathers and bones),
I’ll watch you paint your masterpiece.
I’ll tan the coyote hides they’ll wear.
