When the dry 
brush is flicked 
dust shoots up.
Here use a brush
with no paint.
This is not easy.
Time has coughed
and the sable
dashes by
a hillside in Croatia.


There are 87 nerves
ending in each leg,
like a trunk line
from the phone
company. Let what
is housed within
never surface,
like thoughts
in the back
of your mind.
Your inclination
may be oils
for conealment
but try pencil
on newspaper.
Pick a language
most viewers
will not understand.
