handprints on fresh paint

handprints on fresh paintuse-eyes-stretch_1350298i

impetuous gesture
my handprints on fresh paint…
why not use aerosol
to claim that wall…
then I reflect
that women are not
graffiti prone

where is their fire
to cast life drawn large
across imagined space
like Michelangelo’s 
naked…sacred homilies
scraped and frescoed
on a Sistine dome
