Ink and colored pencil
26 x 40 in.
Yes, I know. I’m doing it again. And so are you. I saw you last year, you reminded me of that one time I came home to your sweet smell filling every corner of my room. Thanks mom. I sigh with relief at the sight of your familiar face down there in the dirt. I’ll mirror your stretch as I give thanks that it’s over, and soon, you will be everywhere. Oh, but you! You are my favorite! Even amongst the bounty you stand out, with your unpredictable parts that wind up into visual bliss. I could look at you forever. But then you went away, and I was left with only a few. Lonelier, sad, but beautiful nonetheless. If anything, a small blue reminder that you, and you, and all of you will be back.
