Cut away the frame from the poster. Remove eye make up and tomato-red lipstick. A woman with black hair and pale skin is staring back. It dawns on me that I am neither bound by my father's past nor my mother's fears. Today, I draw a road map in 4 seasons. Circles with red maple blooms and orange sky on winter palette. Here, I inhale lake's blue tides in spring. The summer night ripples with trickling rain in this corner. Off-tangent is autumn, kicking off gold-orange leaves to a bonfire. The collage is wet on my fingertips. Soil.
crescent moon is a fox
behind grey clouds- i paint
stardust and wild dreams
