Magpie #47

Shona stone carvings

stone smoothed,

polished with Johnson paste wax 
a mother, or father perhaps,
     with two children,
his children, her children?
dirty children with distended bellies and
our bearded confessor on his knees
playful image.
captured by African artists
selling to American tourists
and tradesmen
importing to California, New York
et cetera 
via ups and fed ex
This made of rapoko
but cast in silver,
I would hang it on the neck 
of my wife
