Small Tease

The redhead seated
with her back to us
has teased out

her long, thick hair
which hangs,
frizzled yet soft,

over the back
of a green chair,
green teasing out

the yellow light washing
all over the room,
yellow teasing out

the black heels
of the shoes
she casually wears :

and so a small painting
of a single girl
can tease out, as though

combed, a small poem,
curl by curl
by curl.
