Everything about you – A Poem by Julie Hogg

Everything about you,

how you sketch a female
form, her radial borders,
your red pencil resting on
those fleshy parts between
thumbs and index fingers,
flexing tendons, trapezium
carpels, fluid sheaths from
her waistline, a supporting
handspan in the small of her
back, hatching value, simple
proportional delight at the
speed of a pair of lovers, all
sunshine, sulphur and warm,
calm instinctive calves, svelte
pleats, how her ankles climb
a self-indulgent staircase, in
this space on her page, skip,
genuflect, spontaneously dance,
