her crazy hair years

i
draw the cave
man drawings
on
your flat belly
the mountain peaks
in pencil
above the
belly
button
below your chest
while on your shoulders,
the animal
is at rest

it

cuts your legs
this black
and white nothing

this

art is too extreme
your
eyes tell me
so

so

i stop with the pencil
and pull
out the feathers
you
can fly away
and leave
me here
your
cave man
drawing
from imagination
imagining
what it was
you

used

to

look

like
