I like strong women. You guide my strength with lines of perfect intent drawn, carefully as hemp, about my psyche.

I’m rewiring you. Your smart demon-eyes study me as a sculptor studies his stone, comprehending the correct form within. You have broken me down into raw material. One afternoon in your loft & I was signing a letter parchment paper for your maps, Lilac.

I exist in grace in the hands of an artist. I ride rails laid out for me, achieving balance. The Tao is sought. You feel particularly real; I know you. And you know just what to say: I won’t eat all of you. I’ll leave a piece for the gods…
