Chihuly’s sculptures dazzle us,

the fluorescent twists and

delicate bends.

 

I see you in the structures –

like glass, forever pliant to

a master’s whims.

 

When we were younger

that was forgivable; we

were all being forged shakily.

 

But now, decades later,

we wander these halls, and

I marvel at your need to conform

to any passing force.
