twig leg 

self portrait with twigs and vegetables   the vagueness of raisin eyes, 

feminine fruits convey a softness you’ve tried to hide – 

– small twig legs 

– seen from the distance, 

the shadow converges with the object from which its cast
– I told the students to paint me as they saw fit – black canvas, clown trousers, a lighthouse smashed by waves, a single cloud, 

cumulus, 

over acres of wheat 
there will always be distance between us she said, 

country miles and gaps in the geography, staples misplaced in the middle of the page
