If I could sketch
I would draw this moment,
the way the gray sky provides
a blank canvas for the autumn leaves
and how the beige curtains frame the window
like pillars guard a gateway.
I'd sketch the leafy tendril
escaping from its vase so it can
brush the round red cheek
of a little girl in her picture frame.
Then again, if I could sketch,
I would not be sitting here
seeing this moment at all.
