Fourteen

by the time we finally meet

i will have been distilled

to a single line drawing

pulled from an etching

that was done by tracing

the highlights in a woodcut

patterned after an oil portrait

based on a watercolor

hand-painted over the projection

of a tinted second print

of a fading black-and-white photo

of me on my fourteenth birthday

and you will know everything

and nothing at all about me
