Random Poem:

Cro Magnon

I want to see more freckles
proud ginger hair
Okay a protruding chin
face short and wide,
but girl you've got something
an early lineage
with beads and cave paintings
ancestral worship
and a bigger brain.
The possibilities
are boundless.
Your model reflecting through glass
a thought in a museum
a muses shawl of time
