2016

Dragging myself into the room.
disheveled.
neglected.
untouched.

Put on my dad’s shirt.
faint cologne.
torn.
worn through.

Bring out the easel
heavy.
awkward.
angular.

Take out the canvas.
blank.
dusty.
intimidating.

Dip the brush.
ripples.
color.
consistency.

Make a stroke.
effortless.
vibrant.
unique.

Make another stroke
and another.
and another.
and another.

They say this is how to make a masterpiece; a perfect work of art; something of value.
I say: this is how I express myself.
genuine.
honest.
me.
