POETRY COLLABORATION (2018)
POETRY COLLABORATION WITH AUDREY HIGGINSON (2018)
Audrey Higginson is a pen pal I have had for about a year. She is a wonderful poet and I had always wanted to illustrate her work, so I requested for her to pick some to send to me. These are the results. 
ARTISTRY (2018) Watercolor, ink and type
I simply spill the words in my ead onto the paper in front of me
and there is something unique enough about it that makes it sound like poetry.
I just feel it and it happens. 
Is that artistry?
HER (2018) Watercolor and type
A vision of pink
the swift seduction of spring
as sweet as a rose. 
MOON (2018) Watercolor and type
The night settles soft as the rain falls to sleep.
a warmth like no new grace descends upon my eyes.
you are a moon away as I tuck my thoughts away until dawn and you do the same. 
HUMAN NATURE (2018) Watercolor and type
I see people how they essentially are and that is
hate
and love
and poor character traits
and misguided decisions
and ugly hair 
and bad clothes
and crooked teeth
and I know that I can love them
but I would much rather ignore them 
than risk hating them

WEEP (2018) watercolor and type
We used to weep like hope
and now we love like sadness.
BLOOM (2018) Watercolor and type
I am blooming from within and life is shining from without
US (2018) Watercolor and type
I want us to be packaged up like a gift
breathe in your hair and breathe out your skin
I want you to touch me like you used to 
except this time maybe I would touch you back
because I am no longer afraid
I no longer want us both to die and go to heaven where we can find peace
I have found peace and it was in you eyes
and your mouth
and the way you wanted me 
so I am asking on e more time if I can have you but I will never open my lips
