Statuette

'Neck' Valeria Heine

statuette

I am nothing.

no one thing

an echo.

a statue
in a room
full of laughter

quiet, some-one’s coming.

Who are you?’

-whispers- “no one

Someone is shouting

What is it?’

-whispers- “nothing, no one

‘a shadow, and no one?’

Approached. Gawked.

‘Where have you come from?’

blending
with the canvas
and staring at

shaded figures.

mumbling

Speaking of nothing.

Life resumes, as it does.
Again, I am left behind

to conquer
the shadows, alone.

depreciated.

nothing, no one thing

a statue.
