A Painting

I have painted a doll
On a paper
As white as milk.
I am painting you with color and
Printing by a rosy gold marker a black rose.

Yes, You are to me as soft as foam
as if you have grown bubbles, by millions of colorful see weed,
Your hair is as light as wind…

floating over a group of sea snails,
On the seashore of my brain, I am painting on your soft palm, on nails, and hair on
On a white paper,
As white as milk.
