that I cannot do

Tell me how
you make it look so easy
They follow you like puppy dogs
that, I cannot do
I’m the one in the corner
watching all the tails wag
If we were in Rome
they’d be your dancing harem
I’d be off in the market
flattening papyrus
or washing sand from between my ink-covered toes
head wrapForlorn
drawn today while subbing

  1. Gorgeous drawing! Subbing is certainly agreeing with you; maybe you should do more of it, πŸ˜‰ The eyes, lips, hair — astounding, emotive.
    The words: a prose poem.
    Really, AMRK, hard to believe because you’ve always been great, but I do think you are getting better and better ….
