a semblance that remains

charcoal on cartridge paper

ink applied with a twig

wash blackened-water
with the grungiest brush

a blob puts some form
on a curved line

black placed just there
was meant as grey

never mind never mind
the model is fixed now
upon the paper
and at the end
when time’s over the man
may walk away
but his image
