Am I still the eye of a storm?
A peppering of ice pinning
the sky in place,
high altitude walls of
Greco marble, keeping
me centred.

Am I still the fountain statue?
Offering distorting fluids
to hold me there, with
garnishings of my own figure.

Am I still the Lalique figurine?
Lucidly moulded by
foreign hands, held aloft
once hardened as an example
of solid principle.

Am I still the age of fourteen?
No I am twenty five, not set
within storm, moving insecurity
or impermeable ideas.

Ask not what you can do to poetry, but what poetry can do to you.

I like the way you've used your imagery, here, Alex, to imply the fragile shell of youth. A nice divend in your ending -- good stuff.
