sculpturing (a tonal drawing written in poetic form)

sculpturing 

i want to come inside you
with warm soothing balms
rubbing all the little things
chewd and used in many dark hands

i want to come inside you
with mused drum potions
spilling tiny child notions
whispered and done as other plans

i want to come inside you
with hot native eyes
burning homemade charms
combed and dabbled on
our cunning little shames

i want to come inside you
with soft chanted psalms
pouring tender little things
into tender little things
in tender little things
