Worn out, washed up, played to death


Summer cleaning, mother grieving
Fourteen is a time of leaving
magic marker eyelined
painted henna hair steaked
plastic pretend.
And packing up
played to death dolls.

A fun and stressless summer project

while I wait for decisions. Rather than starting a new project, this summer I have decided to do something for pleasure unadulterated by any form of stress. I am going to casually revisit my old mss that need revision. But right now I need to work on fun. Just fun. It will reflect in my illustration.

And while buying required US Poet Laureate for my daughter's AP Senior English Summer homework assignment (she chose Billy Collins) I found a collection of William Carlos Williams. So for inspiration I snatched up this last copy (sorry'll have to place an order) and will take a few poems and illustrate them. Potential portfolio pieces perhaps. And if something comes of be it. But right now I need a mind tickle , in the worst way.
