Working with mud

sometimes it holds a new form
others
slides back to the clay
it doesn’t matter
how pretty the shape
one second of inattention
gone
time to start all over again
& if
you can get it to the kiln
the firing
hardening
may put cracks
in all that hard work
time to start all over again
this
is the process
teaching skills
to students
tho’ clay
will not try
to put
blame
shame
fault
on you.
