Sally Van Doren


it be possible to write over the
sketch, the ink covering

first his drawing, then my
scribbles, Twombly-esque or

far from it, real words with
spelled meanings, caffeine-

generated pronunciations,
emotion served over a puree

of cocoa and egg yolk, vertical
lines carving ahead of time,

curlicues added after
the burst stamen, the golden

pistol, the implement goddam-
mit, of the spirit?
