Picture Frame

 A picture frame

is expected to be

square

rectangular

border a

painting

or a photo

Don’t you think an

empty

leaning frame

grieves

Like an empty house

a mother without her child

a thunderhead without rain

It needs

to hold the soul of the artist

enclosed in its arms

because it’s

a picture frame
