Yet, you evade my every smoothest thought.From head to toe, I see you in black and white. Your curves, your lines, oh you give me great endeavors. You peek my interest.

You are ideal to me.I press in with my smoothing stick, oh what imagination.Landmarks! Mark that spot.The kiss of figure drawing.I love you, HB, 4B, and 6B"
