Art Gallery of New South Wales, May 2017
A man undressed, lying on his back,
propped on pillows. His legs are open.
His pencilled lines curve: stroked
pubic curls, weighted scrotum—
The penis: asleep, hooded.
Careless thighs exit the page.
More. I have never fastened
a ticking watch around a cock
and balls, or tied a neat bow
around a man’s girth as a present.
The soles of these feet: a wrinkled cave
of skin, akin to a woman’s soft receiving.
