Skinks, a poem


A big boy skink has been
pursuing a big girl skink
all around my studio floor,
patiently but persistently.

His head is broader than hers
but both are broad-headed skinks
and I suspect that more
broad headed skinks are in the offing.

Boy artists have been know
to pursue girl artists here as well.
I return to my canvas and hope
the broad-headed skink has more success.

Just some silliness I threw off in a moment or two this morning. And all sorts of critters roam around my place. This old farmhouse is pretty porous.
