THE AMERICAN ARTIST SEEKS FAME

It is an ice wall before which I stand
with hammer and chisel
in my hand.
Clear as glass through this wall I see
the giants moving
without me.
Sometimes I pound as if in a fight
seeking entrance through
sheer might.
Other times I tap with deft chips
hoping through a crack
I might slip.
Standing on this side makes me fret
knowing I am
no one yet.
