I try to draw the boys…

I try to draw the boys

I love

so I can see them

any time

I want.

I draw these boys

looking at me

as though they could feel

when they were made to feel nothing

but love

for no one

but the one looking.

I fall asleep

sometimes drawing them

and get back to work

in the morning.

I draw these boys so

slowly I think

they get tired of waiting

for me to finish.

But when I do they’d complain

about them having

to stay forever

that way.
