our children would’ve been ugly

she was an artist

artiste if you like

collecting her hair

cut toe fingernails

jars phials in a pretty cabinet

& what I missed

obviously

her medium was only

visual

when I presented her

with ideas wrought words

motifs in ink on paper

her feel

critique

was only about the paper

the poor hand

penmanship

executing the lines

&

our children would’ve been ugly

anyway
