Undulating Brush

I take up my tool
applied to his head
stroking, gently stroking
in waves
brush and I are as one…

…two, three
how many times
‘to one hundred’ cries he
smooth and long enough
to be let down
for his prince

Writing exercise from the FutureLearn How To Make A Poem MOOC.
Choose two arbitrary words as the prompt (one to be a tool)
