MATRYOSHKAS

matryoshkas 1

Sometimes the last

And smallest

Matryoshka doll

Is merely a wooden nubbin

Barely carved into a shape and

Unpainted

What a disappointment

As we pull apart each doll

And eagerly gaze at the form and colors

Only to find an undeveloped

Imperfect lump of wood

Rattling around

In the penultimate doll

But

Sometimes she is complete…
