I Am Going To Make A Museum Out of You

I am going to make a museum out of you.
I will showcase your exhibitions
for private tours
and dust off the bones 
that was thought to be extinct.
I am going to make a museum out of you.
Running through vacant corridors 
in vast rotundas,
I will observe carefully 
the lessons you showcase
because I love digging up dirt
and blowing off the scum
overlaying hidden treasures.
I am going to make a museum out of you.
And this isn’t a threat 
but a promise 
that all of your workings will not
go unnoticed
and your talents will be lauded.
And if anyone cringes at the ancient sculptures with hidden parts,
I can assure you
that they will find these words here repulsive.
One day they will understand the process of making a masterpiece.
They too will know that each sculpted piece
and each deliberate stroke
adds luster to the whole work of art.
Time is of the essence.
Some things should be left unsaid
because some things speak for itself.
So stand back as I build
these private walls surrounding you.
I am going to make a museum out of you.
