Daughter Draws "Can I watch Pokemon on phone?" "No, draw a chair, colour something on the papers lying on the table." The long kitchen ends into a child drawn rill trilling on the crags until its evanescence means a lost picnic, a fishing rod streaming far. "Cannot you draw anything else?" She draws a Pokemon with father's face down in the dirt flashed from the stroke and sketches trees screaming and a bird tired to be any bird specific reduced to a V.
