Some Other Honor


pedestal for moment

given

pulpit

ear constructed

in patient eagerness

deserving risen monument

built in/to

alabaster/porcelain

form

lips, bit

/open   –   intent

on question

but awaiting what is

soon-to-come

 

is worth whatever sculpture

the mind’s architects, scholars

can engineer in a name.

 

no tiaras   –   petty crowns to send

professionals further above

but

most certainly –

some other

honor
