Don’t be strict
as the poets.
No need to destroy 
the work
upon completion.  
Even allow
a few gifts,
early studies.
For the signature
ink, mix in
some paprika.


Where a leg
presses the earth,
the earth rises
around it.
Paint the leg 
prints only,  
show them as craters,
as grassy mounds.
Hang the scouring
rush on the frame.
