Another Face

webfaceIMG_0528

I wait
for a cool breeze
to blow
away heat

that melts me.
A rushed face
drawing–
and it shows.

Out here,
me and the dog,
some frogs,
some chirping birds,

and another face
is done.

Delightful Faces

webredonewfacellightedo2faceslayers3redofacecollage_D7A4020
from
cheap paper
lopsided eyes stare—

lush lips lock away a secret,
a funky nose blows away
the blues.

and here is joy
to draw,
to create

delightful faces.

Freedom is
written

above
a lopsided roof
that reaches to touch it.

children’s
voices echo,
day 1,2,3,4

through walls
and out of
crooked windows.

Imagine,
a home for everyone.

Red and Blue

You see
what I see but
we see differently.

I’m right
You’re right
in the end, it’s wrong.

we stumble over the rubble
of our old self
searching for US.

The Critic

The Critic

She sits in the window
blocking me
from the world

bouncing crumbled
half-finished art
off my head.

Taunting,
“draw, draw, draw,
and still, alien eyes
and a nose that blows
stale air.”

I say to her,
“you’re quite pale today,
go now,
and play in the sun.”
