Art Haiku


Just one green pencil
takes you to another world –
such concentration!

(D sat in the living room for a long time with his replicas
of a Northwest coast totem pole
and a Mayan sculpture covered with glyphs,
and then came into the kitchen to announce
that he was going to trace them and draw a house in between them.
He turned the picture around to show me,
but couldn't stop working on it for even a second.
He was living in that house.)

PS: last day for THAT shirt! He loves it, but look at how short the sleeves are.
