Drawing out a likeness

Trying to sketch her
Sedentary maybe
But so many moods
Burst against herlight-travel across her

Erasure of spirals
Unnervingly irregular

'Will you just tell me how to capture you'

'Perhaps' I say
'A feral deer eating a hunter
'A thousand dead-ends on a hundred maps
'Sexualizing the unpreventable experience'

'An abstract, then?'
