I’m taking love stories and hangups, making color out of them, overlapping them, climbing layers as a I ruminate over what ifs. I’m drawing lines through poems I wrote at seventeen and my brushstrokes have become playful banter with my cousin on his porch in Pleasant Hill as we pass the joint back and forth. I make marks, love them, wash them away, leave the ones that let me peak into what was (just long enough to get my fix so I can move on), trace the line back to the blues or mosey on through with intentions brighter than marigolds in the fall.
