I want to smear
I want it here -
All of it here
where it's
sure to be seen

Drawing won't do
Thin lines
spiky and frail -
they fail,
don't match the image
I feel in my hands

When you feel the vision
it's much clearer than sight
Then you know it's right
Then you know it's right

So let me just smear
dab and dollop
right here
This is it - are we clear?
This is something
It's itching
and tugging
It's something

I'm going to chase it
Try not to harm it
As I leap up and grab it
and pin it
press and preserve it
on this very page.
