Letter # 17

May 18, 2012

At dinner

it takes days to cross her face

her laughter flutters in my head

like a caged bird

and her fingertip resting lightly on the tablecloth

pins  my tongue down

What?

her words crumble-

syllables fall  through  her lashes-

It’s late.

and I’m drunk from the sound of her heels

on the sidewalk.

    we continuously remark on the vitality of the gesture in your sketchings – powerful work – the use of color always unique. I particularly like the ink? is it? the scribbly sketches without color in this set…thank you for sharing your work always
