A Sketchy Character


He drew his own arm once
with his own arm, stairs
going somewhere, anywhere,
nowhere and back again,
faces unspiraling into the
sky. Spheres. Birds, going
(South? North? East? West?
Which way are they going?)
somewhere soon. He blew
our minds with the endless
-ness of everything, illusion
of a world that just keeps
going, black and white
and yet still some-
how shining in an end
-less tampered mat of stars.
A second offering for Walt’s character sketch dVerse prompt.

    This made me downright giddy with the very first line; he’s my fave, so I knew who this was immediately. SO GOOD.

    I was thinking of a teacher or a mentor ~ Specially love this part:

    He blew
    our minds with the endless
    -ness of everything

    Yep. Lived on his work as a budding artist! Still pause when I see something of his.

  4. Reads like a random dance, touching every square foot of the floor with brilliant description. Another winner, De!
