He took an opaque off-white
oval of soap in one hand,
a knife in the other,
and he carved a sculpture
of a little man holding
in one hand a bar of soap,
an opaque, off-white oval,
a knife in the other.

The little man thought
about carving a sculpture out
of the soap, but the challenge
seemed too daunting.

Still he was too bored
to do nothing at all.
so he slit his wrist.
