Sit still,
Sit still…
It’s not going to be much longer now.

Right now?
I’m curving my thumb,
encrusted with chipping yellow paint,
around the curve of your delicate face.

Be bored then.
As I said, I’m almost finished.

Now see,
When you do things like that
it just makes it that much harder to finish.
You most certainly did knock over my paints.
I swear you are finicky as a child.
Well, I guess
we can take a break.

I feel better now,
How about you, darling?
Lousy? I’m sorry,
I didn’t mean to leave you hanging,
It’s just that it was so good…
Wait, where are you going?

Well now this is never going to be finished.
