THE SABLE LADIES

provided by Stockphoto

the sable ladies
humbly shaped from the soft dirt
refined to placate the universe’s appetite for beauty
measured by moral inferiors as refuse
revealing the marks of a bondswoman
tasking the burdens of weighty labors and kinspeople
taken to the house of her husbandly possessor
made fat with his ecstasy
grayed by sweet age and bitter time
to finally be laid down deeply and covered with serenity
