Laid out in short pen strokes on the sketchpad,
A nod to Georgia O’Keeffe.
I am a sum of my experiences, teachers, and influences.
There’s that music at 2am coming over the speakers in the study.
Move aside the pile of novels, guides, and paint brushes and make myself a bed in the middle of it all.
Another sleepless night, sketching birds in flight.
I’ll take this train to the very last station.
