Imaginary Rescue

Imaginary Rescue

Found my sketch of her
drawn one typical cold
rainy winter night
in the dark basement
of a pub in Edinburgh.

She was acting bored
before young artists,
and a few like me,
sipping beer and wine
as we sketched her
posing in the nude.

The other day I rescued her,
placing her with my gulls
on a favorite shore,
not realizing how bored
she’d be in my
imaginary world.

    1. Not sure what you mean? I think she was happier sipping beer in the nude..
