The intricacy of lace,
Or delicate vintage ironwork,
Even chiseled leather,
And lines on a rugged man’s face
Are seen as more beautiful than
Script work on the back of a lady’s hand.
Yet I’ve never undertaken a project so demanding
As my line work so outstanding
Such an undertaking can only be undone by
That white-rubber eraser, Death. What a guy!
