This drawing and poem came into being one year ago today. They were published separately on Recently Banned Literature, and subsequently shared on Facebook. Canvas 960 is one of my favorites. But I feel that way about a good many of my drawings, especially after I’ve forgotten them, which I almost always do, and then happen upon them again. Old friends? New? Both. All.
and this is the world
and this is the world in the form of a map
mountains are knuckles and
nations are blotches of failed pigment
and this is my skin and that
is where rivers run
