Portrait of an Artist

Portrait of an artist - jGirls Magazine

She dips her fingertips into red paint
just like she dips them into my back
I marvel at the thick strokes that drip down her watercolor masterpieces
but not as much as I appreciate the strokes she creates on my body
figures swirl around on her paintings
just like my eyes swirl every time I see her
walk into the kitchen to spread jam on my toast
just like she spreads her soul onto the canvas
