An Untenable Proposition
"An Untenable Proposition" - oil on clayboard panel, 16 x 20 inches.
To be a person is an untenable proposition.
Odd of proportion,
unbalanced of body, feeling, and mind.
Two predator’s eyes
yet seem always to be trying to look back.
Unhooved, untaloned fingers
seem to grasp mostly grief and pain.
To create, too often, mostly grief and pain.
-from TO BE A PERSON by JANE HIRSHFIELD
