Aware



Aware

The consequences of
wondering yet knowing
and ignoring the urge
to comply.

Yellowed



Yellowed

The light
should have been
the sun,
and the stage,
a meadow
somewhere
warm.

In Another Room



In Another Room

She looked lonely
on the stage.
She looked even lonelier
after inventing couples
on the other side
of the wall.

Did this sketch yesterday morning of “SR” in a session with the Independent Painters.

Almost Still Life



Almost Still Life

The chair,
the vase,
the artificial flowers,
even the blanket covered stool.
And so she sits like them
pretending to be strangers
together for the first time.
