Do I look that simple or like a little tot,
for I seem to get this question asked a lot.
“Did you draw that?” They always ask,
even with my hand equipped,
with pencil, sketch pad and eraser and my eyes so focused as laser.
I always look up with the same expression,
take a deep breath and smile in quick succession,
as I respond in a manner as light as can be,
I am the one doing this drawing, don’t you see?
And yet I must prepare for the same thing the next day,
the stops, eye pops and all sorts of what not.
I must be missing the look.
