Statue - by Rand

Somehow he looks
even more helpless
and vulnerable nailed
to a horizontal cross

We all approach him
with the proper sense
of caution and reverence

I steel myself and find
the courage to touch
an impossibly solid toe
before sliding my finger
up to caress the nail

Later Timmy returns
to lean down and kiss
his unyielding granite lips
