1876


I saw a long ago photograph of the face
of the Statue of Liberty. In front of it 
was a man with his hands on his hips
wearing a black suit. The sky was overcast. 

I am the only man in the world who will stand 
in front of an angry woman’s cast iron and copper 
face today. I wonder if I should wear my black suit, 
and my grey hat? 

These are the words he never said, although 
he might have said It looks like it might rain.
