I drew this lion sketch sometime approximately between 2009-2010. I lost the original after my separation from my former husband professional poker player Aaron Lein. -APL131

Bigger than I
Candace Brooks

Wrapped around my blue bottle of vodka is his hair tie

It smells like his wet, luscious glory

And I am impressed by his art

He reminds me of a lamb

Though he’s bigger than I

But he’s much softer

And on my mirror is a sketch of his,

A faceless body resembling a flower,

Reminding me of him

Though he’s bigger than I,

But he’s softer

He laid his head on my lap as we listened to poems,

And I stroked his hair

And I thought of aspirin, and drink,

merman

I drew this sketch of a Merman after my arrival in Garland TX, in the summer of 2013. I lost the original. -APL131 

As I licked whipped cream and caramel from his finger

And I wonder what’s wrong with scratching and clawing my way in

Who am I impressing?

Who am I kidding?

My mouth tastes like medicine,

And his tongue explores it

(no secrets to be found there, however)

I grasp his wet mane with my small hand

I took his pencil

And tried to sketch my own flower

He’s bigger than I,

but softer

I am 99.9% certain this is not an actual photograph of Beethoven, since I do not think camera technology existed at this level when he was alive. -APL131
